One of the many paradoxes of human creativity is that it seems to benefit from constraints.
This project that I photographed for Brave New Eco features a kitchen footprint that was tiny and complicated, with structural walls creating awkward alcoves. The resulting cabinetry that was designed and installed not only made sense of the space but is very easy on the eye. Harmonious proportions, clear composition and a balance of design elements all contribute to the success of this small kitchen space.
