Kitchen Counter With Giant Saltwater Aquarium Beneath

March 13, 2015


Because who hasn't dreamed of their kitchen smelling fishy all the time, this is the kitchen counter (complete with sink and stovetop) with a saltwater aquarium beneath, designed and built by Dutch designer Robert Kolenik. The entire counter raises with the push of a button for easy access to the aquarium for maintenance or grabbing a fish to fry. I'm going to stock my kitchen aquarium with shrimp and scallops so I've always got fresh seafood handy. FUN FACT: Did you know lobster tails aren't actually giant shrimp, they're the tails from lobsters? That shit blew me away when I found out.

Keep going for two more shots including one with the counter raised.



Thanks to Brion, who wants a kitchen counter with a giant ant farm underneath. Ahahahhaha, man, my kitchen has tons of ants.

    Fresh Seafood, lobster and crab any day, any time.

    That is the most interesting and fantastic invention I have ever seen. I love the ocean and the Caribbean. As a wife and mom I spend a lot of time in the kitchen as well. It would be so fun to combine both my favorite things. A nice looking kitchen and the under water sea life.

    Looks great, though they are tough to keep clean. Would need an army of turbo snails for that bad boy.

    pretty sure if you actually prepare food on that your going to stress the fuck out of the fish and might end up killing them

    Unless you're banging pots and pans on the glass, slamming things on the countertop, or accidentally bumping into the glass with your knees or feet, I don't see how you'd stress the fish out. Kids, maybe. Adults, probably not so much. Besides, I'm sure the designer installed some kind of heat resistant material underneath the burners - not to heat up the fish tank.

    The fish! I knew we forgot something! Guess it's back to the drawing board with an aquarium on one side that spills when flipped.

    I like this design, this can work well with most home layouts.

    Friend: "Dude, where's your garbage disposal?"
    Me: "Points to shark in tank".
