Simply Amazing Kitchens

1. Ghat House by Max Núñez Arquitectos

Max Núñez tackled the topography head-on at this remarkable waterfront residence for an adventurous family in Cachagua, Chile. The space is filled with surprises—theatrical indulgences, if you will—such as a long, railingless staircase that descends into the kitchen. Overall, a restrained materials palette dominates throughout, with polished concrete flooring mingling with stainless steel counters. Slightly red-tinged timber—a local wood similar to American cherry—clads cabinetry, which doubles as the platform for a mezzanine seating area.
2. Penthouse Apartment by SABO Project

SABO founder and principal Alex Delaunay thought outside the box when renovating a 775-square-foot penthouse apartment in a century-old Paris building. In the otherwise white-on-white kitchen, a vertical garden sprouts from one wall and flooring is a veritable rainbow—whimsical six-inch-wide stripes of rubber in 14 colors deliver a chromatic treatment. It perfectly suits the client, a fashion forecaster, who “always flips through material swatches,” Delaunay explains.

3. Paris Apartment by Agency Marie Deroudilhe

Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA) is best known for ambitious master plans and large-scale biomorphic installations, so designing a residence in a Sydney suburb heralded a marked departure for principal Chris Bosse. In signature LAVA style, organic elements pervade—the globular bamboo-topped kitchen island was fabricated at the same Shanghai factory where Zaha Hadid Architects interiors are made, and above hangs a standard office light punctuated with laser-cut plywood discs like vertebrae. Raw-edged plywood and high-pressure laminate clads custom cabinetry, providing a geometric backdrop to the curvaceous kitchen centerpieces.

5. Oren Yonayov Apartment by UriMichaelPalan

Clean-lined modernism is no match for Uri Michael Palan, who studied under Pierre Koenig in the 1980s before establishing his namesake Tel Aviv–based firm. One of his recent commissions, a 2,000 square-foot apartment in the same city, boasts a Danish kitchen system consisting of stainless steel modules in powder-coated black. The finished island, which makes room for two sinks and integrated gas burners, leads to a bright yellow wire sculpture—a giant abstracted dandelion—hanging on the rough concrete wall.
