Mix and max The kitchen in this small apartment involved some creative thinking in order to fit as much storage into the tight space as possible. Emma and Ross Perkin of Emil Eve Architects used Ikea cabinet carcasses, and fitted two wall units one above the other. They then added a large fridge door over the top of each pair to give the run a streamlined finish. The couple didn’t waste any space at all, even along the left-hand wall. Here, the shallow fitted cabinets and open shelves provide storage without intruding too much on the floor area.
