From the designer:
This kitchen, in an historic, double-storey villa in Ponsonby, was given a thoroughly modern makeover.
My homeowners, who are in the food industry, used the words, ‘dark’ and ‘moody’ when describing the look they wanted.
Both are keen cooks, so this dictated the appliance selection and its functionality.
Hence the four cooktop modules: gas, grill, teppanyaki and induction – an industrial scale extractor was also needed.
A particular challenge for this kitchen was to accommodate the industrial scale extraction system.
The large ducting is housed and hidden in the top cabinetry and runs down to the underfloor motor units.
Also in the ducting area, a trough was formed to hide the pots for the extensive indoor plants on view.
