This clean-lined kitchen is organised to maximise functionality while quiet tones and plenty of open wall space allow art works to shine

Designed by Erik Rudolfsson, RAAarchitects

From the architect:

This project involves the extensive alterations and additions to a 1940s free-standing house in Woollahra for a family with adult children.

The main living areas are orientated towards the rear garden and pool and the more formal living room faces an elevated terrace and landscaped area towards the street. 

The bedrooms are on the upper level and the garage is situated at street level.

The kitchen is positioned at the pivotal point between the family and dining rooms and the entry/stair and formal living room.


The owner, who is an artist, wanted an open-plan kitchen but did not want it to dominate the room – instead wanting plenty of wall and shelf space for the display of art.

The solution was to only use half the width of rear wall; create a full-width island for breakfast prep, baking and catering; and relegate the cooking area to the rear benchtop.

All full-height joinery is Dusty Mule polyurethane with recessed aluminium angles and overhead cabinets in Monument.

Additional kitchen storage and the laundry are built-in into the rear wall – in Vivid White to match the internal walls.

Sliding doors can close off the full-height island when doing laundry and for catering (there is also access from the side passage).

The large island in Silver Grey Marble from Neiko is the feature of the room and is used for prepping food as well as for bar seating.

As for all our designs, the kitchen is practicable, ergonomic, and beautiful.
