Why bother with a traditional kitchen when you can 'hip up' your loft with a revolving circular kitchen? The Original Circle Kitchen is an award winning kitchen design from CC Concepts in New Zealand. The circular kitchen can fit in the smallest places, but it has, "storage capacity equivalent to 12 cupboards and a bench top length of approx 3 meters, equipped with a refrigerator, dishwasher, ceramic hob, oven with microwave, range hood, sink and waste bin." Also, it's hot.

The designers note, "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."
