Simplicity rules in this new kitchen, but even though it's a small space, there's no compromise in functionality.
Designer Toni Roberts CKDNZ, BArch of Kitchen Architecture worked closely with the owners to make sure the kitchen was as spacious as possible, and had a relaxed, honest aesthetic.
"The plywood look of textural hoop pine veneer suited the space and provided the base colour palette," says Roberts. This is contrasted with crisp white and various stainless steel accents, including new Fisher & Paykel appliances. Given the compact situation, storage was maximised to its full depth, and every corner has space-saving storage systems."
Roberts created handles from exposed cutouts in the cabinets, which not only saved space but also highlighted the plywood edge detail on the cabinetry.
"The owners had already enjoyed the convenience and functionality of the Fisher & Paykel Double DishDrawer¢, so the natural choice for the dishwasher in the new kitchen was the flush version, which continues the recessed handle theme."
