In any project, it is the communication between the client, the designer and the cabinetmaker that determines success.

This new kitchen shows how such great teamwork can result in an award-winning kitchen that works on every level.

Designer Natalie Du Bois worked with Rob Hendrickx of RH Cabinetmakers on the project, which won the NKBA Trends Innovative Kitchen Award 2014.

Hendrickx says there are many special features in the kitchen that needed an individualised construction process to best showcase the 1950s Desert-Modern style the owners were after.

The island is supported by Tasmanian blackwood columns that curve under the granite top to create a timber detail. Another corner of the island features a circular timber cabinet with a butchers block top, and flush curved drawers.

Specially routed handles were inspired by a vintage furniture piece from the era.
