Design Sleuth: Plywood Crates as Instant Kitchen Storage

Issue 33 · Kitchen Week · August 15, 2012

Spotted (and admired): DIY-like kitchen storage in a historic building turned modern loft in Ovideo, Spain.

Designed by Alfredo Antuña, the apartment features painted raw stone walls, polyurethane-finished pavement, and a compact kitchen (dishwasher next to oven next to sink next to washing machine). Particularly, we like the plywood storage boxes stacked just under the kitchen island so much that we've sourced a variety of options to mix and match and get the look with.

See more of the Spanish renovation project via Europa Concorsi.

Above: Plywood boxes with lids, open shoe-box style boxes, and drawers are neatly stacked beneath the countertop.

Above: Antuña broke up the wood boxes with stacks of white-painted concrete blocks that support the counter extension.
