invisible fridge

“Notice anything missing? Our refrigerator sits below counter-level. The kitchen was intended to be more like a piece of furniture than a separate room. There are no tall objects; there’s not even a hood over the stove range. Whether it’s just the two of us, or a dinner party, the kitchen is a central part of the experience. I grew up in kitchens that were separate rooms, but everyone would still hang out in the kitchen and it closed us off from the rest of the house. I wanted to design a kitchen that was a part of the larger apartment.”
