This past weekend, over at the Tiny House Talk Facebook page, Alex reposted my video tour of my tiny house with the question, “Could you cook in this kitchen?”

While there were plenty of positive responses, there were also some questions and concerns about our kitchen I wanted to address right here on Tiny House Talk.

Deep underground in London’s south east side, architect Laura Clark did something that most people would never even think about doing. She renovated a public bathroom and made the 600 square foot space her own home.

The public loo, as they are referred to across the pond, was long abandoned and Clarke took it as a personal challenge to renovate the space and make it her home. She referred to it as “micro regeneration.” The story in the Telegraph shares a bit about the history of the space and exactly how she went about her renovation.

You can see the beautiful kitchen and sitting room in the photo gallery in the post. I love her use of open shelving in the kitchen – something I prefer. Why keep all your pretty dishes and, in my case, great bar ware behind closed doors? The rest of her kitchen is streamlined and modern. Check out the slideshow here. You can also see her amazing use of outdoor space, something you don’t expect from a public toilet.

I found this tiny all in one kitchen appliance to be a little strange but if it were to really work it would definitely save a lot of space.  It’s a concept design by Zivile Januskaityte called the Cook ‘n Roll.

It’s super small but has lots of features including a cook top, dishwasher, sink, storage, oven, and a sanitizer.  It has a sliding top which reveals the sink and beside the sink–some storage.

The weirdest part are the flexible sensory cleaning sticks…  The green things that the dishes wrap around.  Apparently they clean dishes with negative ions.  The plumbing for water?  I don’t know.  Maybe it will have a built in dehumidifier that filters and ionizes the water.

I’m not sure how realistic this is but I’m sure that something similar can be produced.  Plus there is room below the table for plumbing, tanks, or whatever.  And at the very least the green flexible sensory cleaning sticks can simply be a drying rack after washing the dishes by hand.
