To include a scullery where they could have a separate work zone and clean up zone
Given the elongated shape of the room, we couldn’t fit a separate scullery into this space without compromising the overall footprint of the kitchen and the main thoroughfares.
So, a separate work and clean up zone was positioned behind three large sliding doors.
When closed off, this gives the space a seamless pared back look.
When open, it exposes another work zone.
With the placement here of a secondsink, dishwasher andmicrowave, this is a high use, high function area.
It is also the main area for pantry storage, small appliances, glassware and recycling bins.
Have casual seating within the kitchen area as the main dining room is in another part of the house
The large, cantilevered benchtop provides a dramatic end to the kitchen, which can be viewed from many important focal points within the house.
This also allows the family to comfortably sit around the table.
By pushing this benchtop to its limits, it also pushes this social area into other living spaces – helping the kitchen to be the hub of the home.
