This unique kitchen remodel required a careful design response. The dilapidated wooden cabinetry was completely infested by roaches, rats, and mice. The elderly owner (the designer's grandfather) was unable to clean the surfaces nor locate goods in the rat-nest clutter. The budget was just above zero. SMASH saw an opportunity for improvement through innovation. Thus, the kitchen cabinets were to be made of five modified shopping carts. The open frames disable any pests' inhabitation by exposing every crevice and simultaneously put the food on display for ease of location. The free cart frames (all design/labor performed by SMASH pro bono) allowed the budget to be used elsewhere, mostly the fine cork tile flooring. The entire project budget came in under $600 - and boom, the rats are gone.
