From the kitchen designer:

Owner brief

  • A fully functional practical working kitchen with connection to outside – a beautiful house to connect with the beautiful estate
  • Kitchen to be centre of the room
  • Kitchen to be very social
  • A large sized service area with extended scullery behind for multi functions and everyday tasks
  • A space to be enjoyed but also thoughtful in its function
  • A kitchen that facilitates all the purposes and all the people

  • Organic self sufficient farmhouse designed to incorporate inside / outside
  • Being on a farm we had to include provisions for wellies, a connection to the greenhouse, a prep area for washing fruit and vegies
  • House entry doesn’t have a formal approach, the kitchen stands at the centre of arrival and connects to the western courtyard
  • Dark scullery so a skylight installed for connection to natural light
  • Colour choices follow the story of the land, green and beautiful, sitting quietly
  • Timber doors painted to see the texture of the timber and the beauty of the colour
  • Work in the beautiful stools we had
  • Outcome was pleasing – to accommodate so many people in a true working kitchen that would perform culinary delights
