Steal This Look: Creative Plywood in a London Kitchen

June 7, 2022

The creative re-arrangement of a 1920s townhouse kitchen in London is the results of Nimtim Architects’ creative approach. Cabinets made from birch plywood, a countertop made of white formica, and terracotta floor tiles set the stage for whimsical accents.
