kimono cabinet


This exercise in efficient living in a compact urban condominium arose in an era long before the tiny house movement arose. The unit, in a beautiful cast-in-place concrete residential tower was stripped bare to the shell. To contrast this raw material, a pristine furniture-like cabinet was constructed within the space to act as a divider in lieu of walls between public and private spaces. Different portions of the cabinet open and close to reveal and conceal different aspects of living – from functional aspects such as kitchen, laundry, bathrooms to a mini office/entertainment center and a closet for kimonos.
