Circle Kitchen open

Sometimes in small spaces, particularly urban retrofits, it is difficult to find wall space for everything needed to make a complete kitchen – or it is simply less desirable in the face of alternatives like these rotating kitchens from Compact Concepts.

Packed into less than six square feet of space is essentially everything one needs for a complete kitchen interior, including a refrigerator, sink, microwave, dishwasher, surfaces, cupboards and cabinets. They also come in a variety of styles and finishes, including simple colors and modern-looking metals.

The best part is: everything rotates for maximum accessibility – you could have your kitchen span between two rooms or spin the non-essentials out of the way to create more communal seating or working space as needed. At five-figure sums these designs do not come cheap – but neither does downtown urban real estate these days.

Here’s a great description of this space saving kitchen design from Compact Concepts:

“The original Circle ® kitchen is an innovative high-tech compact kitchen concept for commercial and residential use. This 180° revolving kitchen design features all the characteristics of a traditional kitchen with an incredibly low demand on overall space, less than 1.8 sqm.”

“Whether you are an architect, developer, interior designer, or property owner, you will be surprised at the diversity of new planning perspectives in the city and in the building construction as well as in the resort, hotel and urban development.”

“This concealable ‘room within a room‘ concept is realized with the ability of blending the circular kitchen location independently; particularly where space is at a premium. Through rotating the complete work area may be reached from a sitting or standing position.”

“With a choice of different models equipped with high-end features this compact ‘lifestyle mini’ is a smart highlight in any apartment, loft, condominium, hotel room, holiday home, retirement residence as well as office and foyer.”
