The Countertop In This Kitchen Continues On To Become A Desk, TV Stand, And Window Seating

FIGR Architecture Studio has designed a modern home for a family of five in Ascot Vale, Australia, that includes a clever kitchen design.

The kitchen has a large island, black cabinets, wood accents, and black penny tiles, however, it’s the countertop that caught our eye.

The countertop continues on from the kitchen and transforms into a small desk area.

From the desk, the countertop drops down to become a stand for the TV in the living room. The penny tile backsplash from the kitchen also continues and creates a backdrop for the TV, helping it blend into its surroundings.

Continuing further, the white surface lines the corner and transforms into a daybed, with pillows adding comfort.

Let’s take a look at the other areas of the home…

The front of the home has a white exterior that matches the white picket fence, while a large black-framed window protrudes away from the house.

The architect explains the inspiration behind the home, “The project takes inspiration from its surroundings and context and reinterprets its findings through a contemporary take on a traditional Victorian elevation, resulting in a considered outcome and street integration.”
