The Invisible Multipurpose Kitchen in Home 10 by i29 Interior Architects

View all 9 Photos

Part of a Paris apartment dating back to 1905, this barely-there kitchen was renovated by Amsterdam’s i29 Interior Architects, the same studio that designed Room on the Roof. The minimalist re-design hides the kitchen behind five sliding wall panels that echo the original plasterwork. Behind the veil, there are all the expected appliances and shelving, plus a dishwasher, a computer station, and a writing desk. The multi-purpose space features a table-like island as well. Made of steel and finished in black, the design has a sleek, muted look. Nonetheless, the functional piece is a great addition to the kitchen, as it contains a sink, an induction cook surface, and an expandable counter. Above it, there is also a white ventilation hood, which, hanging from the ceiling, resembles a boxy lampshade. From afar, the nearly-invisible kitchen looks like a part of the hallway, contiguous with the historical interior of the rest of the apartment.
