Space is at a premium in many small, urban apartments, especially in places like New York City or old European metropolises. Austrian design studio Bonpart created this stylishly modern kitchen intervention as an alternative option for residents of Vienna's old flats, which often feature a narrow kitchen, situated in a corridor of some sort.

Seen over at Mocoloco and titled "Altbau" (which appears to mean "old building"), the design provides an extra alder wood countertop, additional storage tucked behind laminated plywood and HPL paneling, and supported by a stainless steel frame. When paired with an existing kitchen, it adds a lot of extra useful features.

There's a small, hidden surface where dinner can be served, which folds away when not in use.

Sporting clean and minimalist lines, Altbau has some simple but effective ideas for any small living space, or even a tiny house, transforming what might have been wasted or unused space into something functional.
