This Kitchen Was Designed To Hide Behind A Wall Of Minimalist Cabinets

Woodrow Architects has designed the remodel of a lower ground floor apartment in London, England, and included in the updated interior is a kitchen that’s been hidden within a wall of cabinetry.

This modern kitchen, which can hidden away when not in use, is enclosed in muted metallic gray cabinets. The main section of the kitchen is accessed via a pair of folding doors.
