Using commercial construction material injects drama into this new home

​​​​​​​This kitchen is the hub of the home both in terms of entertaining and family life. So, the owners wanted a generous island with space for casual seating. In response, Freeman and Ball designed the large, 6m-long central island with a mitred waterfall benchtop at one end and a gravity-defying 1.2m-long cantilever at the other – making it a feature and an informal dining space. In reality, the long, floating bench is underpinned by a steel supporting structure. To the right of the kitchen is the glass-walled corridor that runs right down the side of the home, accessing the four bedrooms and double-car garage.
