From the designer:
The owner wanted the kitchen to be the centrepiece of the living area, a subtle commercial/semi industrial statement.
Materials specified had to stand up to heavy use in the kitchen.
The owner loves to entertain so the kitchen had to have impact.
Part of the design consideration were the angled windows and door detail at the back of the ground floor, which made the connection between the larger kitchen space to the dining area.
Also requested was changing the back area shape, squaring off the windows and doors, and changing the access points to the balcony to help create better open space for the kitchen and dining area.
Loving to entertain, the homeowner wanted to have the fridge, pantry and cooking zones to be hidden from view – this was achieved by placing them in the gallery section of the kitchen space.
The use of a retractable door system allowed for the ovens and the drinking zone to be hidden when not in use.
