Japanese Kitchen

One of the more interesting slideshows from the NYTimes…

“In Tokyo, where land can be prohibitively expensive and plots unbelievably small, flexible space and multipurpose rooms are not just design preferences but also survival techniques. In designing Cell Brick, a house for a woman in her 50’s, the architect Yasuhiro Yamashita pushed this idea to a new extreme by merging the client’s bedroom and kitchen. Divided by a long, wedge-shaped counter with metal dining chairs on one side and a no-frills cooktop, double sink and refrigerator on the other, the main room is used for both eating and sleeping; the bed is set apart only by a subtle floor-level change.”
