The Uzine restaurant has a concrete island and if youre curious about the rest of the design you can visit it in Stockholm, Sweden. It was designed by architect Richard Lindvall in 2015. The space used to be a sausage factory and the transformation had to be major in order to turn it into a welcoming restaurant with a totally new concept.
Private residences designed in the recent few years often feature concrete counters in their open space kitchens. The Street House is located in Toronto, Canada and was recently renovated by gh3. The project was very challenging as the architects had to transform a historic landmark into a contemporary home without totally extinguishing its defining Edwardian features. The kitchen was opened up and a concrete island became its focal point.
Since the storage space is so limited, you have to be inventive and creative. Open shelves are very popular in kitchenettes and every little inch of space is usually used for something. Even though its packed and small, its also a functional space that needs to be decorated while carefully taking into consideration many aspects such as the way each appliance is usually used, the size of every item and so on. Here are a few examples o some very nicely organized kitchenettes.
