They say location is everything when it comes to real estate and maybe that explains the relatively low rental fee for this apartment. If you look closely at the floor plan, you'll notice that the architect has located the toilet bowl in a surprising spot, right inside the kitchenette (marked with a K on the drawing). I guess that makes it more of a kithenlet than a kitchenette but whatever you call it, it's an innovative use of space that never would have crossed my mind.
Everything but the Kitchen Sink
That's exactly what my buddy Tommy T's first apartment in New York had, everything but the kitchen sink. He didn't mind too much though since he only washed the dishes when the set ran out maybe every couple of weeks. Then he would haul all the dirty china into the shower and kill two birds with one stone. Maybe it wasn't ultra sanitary but it sure beat taking a shower in the dishwasher.
