Given these constraints, it was critical to carefully plan the size and positioning of sinks, cooktop and dishwasher without using space on the island benchtop, or sacrificing functionality.
The solution was to carefully arrange the appliances between the back bench and scullery to ensure an efficient working environment, that still felt spacious for two people cooking in the kitchen.
Given the downsizing and entertainment focuses of the brief, it was critical that the workflows functioned independently and as one, thus maximising utility and flexibility in what is a smaller, yet more efficient kitchen.
With the focus on detail, products and specification were critical to the success of this kitchen and thee owner’s brief.
Dezignatek cabinetry was selected to help reduce fingerprinting and the concrete look benchtop by GBC was specified with a leathered finish to add texture, soften the harder material and add an organic feel.
The Fisher & Paykel Integrated fridge contributed hugely to the overall design.
Integrating the fridge into the cabinetry ensures consistency with the overall colour palette and allows the brass finishes to stand out.
This kitchen is the heart of the home – perfect for entertaining, easy to navigate, aesthetically pleasing and cohesive with the architecture.
