Kitchenette 2.0

Only part of a kitchen out in the open, the rest behind doors—that's a concept I can see taking root. It accommodates both shy and show-off design. The floor-to-ceiling fumed oak cabinets comprising the back wall contain the sink, ovens, and the fridge. A cooktop and a couple drawers occupy the metal 'box' on top of the leggy black walnut table. The thicket of suspended steel cylinders aren't simply eye-candy; a couple are home to ventilation; the rest house lighting and stereo speakers. This kitchen is called @home and was designed by C+S Architects.
