Cook Out

While I have plenty of more elaborate outdoor kitchens to share with you throughout the summer, there's something about this utterly basic design—called QZone—that strikes me as an appealingly modest counterpoint to tomorrow's traditionally cacophonous celebrations. The aluminum-framed pavilion is topped by fabric roof panels and measures roughly eight-by-eight feet. [Too small for you? Just add another cubic module.] The slatted backsplash accommodates a variety of storage accessories: hanging shelves, rods, et cetera.
