Small kitchen is not always synonymous with simple kitchen, but even with linear kitchen: today we present a project realized in a penthouse in Milan, on the top floor of an historic building of the forties, where, during the restoration, it has preserved some of the original architectural characteristics.
The kitchen, an Ola 20 is open on the living and the corner too takes the most advantage, where the ceiling is lower, corresponding to the inclined pitch. All the functions are designed with production modules which are integrated and adapted thanks to some custom-made solutions.
The layout develops on three edges, using the under window for inserting the sink and the long edge for the cooking area. The doors are in micalized lacquer Nordic white, the top is in quartz stone. The table, placed into a peninsula, has the base in laminated and shaped wood and the top in laminated.
3 simple ideas for the extrasmall ROOMS
- THE SHAPED TABLE
Being the integral part of the layout, it is placed in front of the kitchen, partially screening it compared to the rest of the room. With support base with sinuous shape in wood, has the top in laminate; this one is carved round the column so that you can fix it to the wall, obtaining a peninsula.
- SIDEBOARD ON THE CURVE
On the kitchen’s entrance a pull-out tall unit with a smoothed profile, custom-made, allows to reduce the clutter in the passage area. To take advantage of the vertical space and have more storage compartments, the element is divided into two overlapping compartments.
- OVEN IN THE ATTIC
The layout is completed by an other module on the drawing. 130 cm tall, occupies the not-walkable-area of the room, where the ceiling is lowered. The available depth is sufficient to allow the recess of an electric multifunctional oven, raised around 50 cm from the floor.
