When does a kitchen become an art gallery? When it includes a boldly colored architectural volume that looks like a Donald Judd sculpture. Such a unit catches the eye in a townhouse designed by Ian Moore Architects in Sydney’s Surry Hills neighborhood.
The vibrant yellow, custom-built joinery unit visually and physically connects the first-floor kitchen with the mezzanine bedroom. Measuring roughly 10 feet long by 2½ feet wide by 9 feet high (on each floor), the cupboard conceals kitchen storage, laundry facilities, and an integrated fridge and freezer on the lower level; it serves as the bedroom’s closet above.
