What do you get when a mid-century modern sensibility meets 2001: A Space Odyssey? A singular kitchen designed by GRAFT for a loft in Hamburg, Germany.
Situated in the middle of the space, this compact kitchen is literally the heart of the home. The kitchen and the bath, the "wet" areas of the loft, were cleverly conceived as a pod.
This cantilevered shelf can serve as a mini-prep station or a bar area during parties.
Angling the upper half of the kitchen side towards the ceiling reduces the apparent bulk of the structure and adds visual appeal.
Lining up the three counters of the kitchen/bath pod allows for an unobstructed view through the loft.
A half-bath and wee library are tucked into the backside of the kitchen.
All that is missing is sentient computer system named "HAL."
