The brief was to create a kitchen that can withstand heavy use and be a space for the young family to entertain and create memories.

the clients wanted to have the fridge, pantry and cooking zones hidden from view. This was achieved by placing them in the gallery section of the kitchen space. The use of the retractable door system allowed for the ovens and the drinking zone to be cleverly hidden when not in use. The island became the centrepiece of the industrial design direction, a unique treatment which allows it to float above the floor with a framed system. Stunning porcelain benchtop provide strength and durability. Structural lacquer doors on the island, an industrial texture paint finish, with the warmth of dar-oak texture wood veneer as the main feature for all tall cabinets. Completes the stunning look.

A circular structual post was also cladded in a peal mosaic to create a connection between the spaces. Timer flooring was selected in a whitewashed oak finish as contrast against the dark oak and titanium coloured doors. The beautiful crystal pendant lighting over the dining table was matched to the pendants over the island, creating the soft and sophisticated look of the ’40s.

The styling brief for this multi award winning designer kitchen , was modern but warm and filled with texture. The subtle two tone kitchen has Cesar dark oak textured wood veneer doors and titano structural lacquer doors and drawers for the island. Both finishes use the inside grip carved rebated handle detail which provides a flush appearance.

Bringing the materials together is the beautiful natural honed dolomite stone used on the bench top and splash back. The island bench top has a high apron on the island which creates a luxury design statement.

To allow for a formal and informal dining the inclusion of a drop-down table in matching dark oak wood veneer is providing an amazing entertaining kitchen space.

A multi room project with a kitchen space that would provide a casual seating area, and a connection with the butler’s pantry which will have storage and a small appliance zone.

The colour palette of the kitchen doors and shelving are a combination of titanium and wood like melamine to create the commercial style and warmth. The island was designed so that seating can be around the extended bench top, which is supported by a black powder coated metal leg. Overall the design statement is sleek and industrial taking in the greenery seen in the window splash back.
