Leuschke Kahn Architects wins 2022 TIDA New Zealand Architect-designed Kitchen of the Year

Congratulations to Leuschke Kahn Architects, winner of the 2022 TIDA New Zealand Architect-designed Kitchen of the Year. See more of this clever design in a tight space

Watch a slide show of this winning kitchen, plus commentary from architect Paul Leuschke

Part of the modernisation of an historic cottage, this newly formed open-plan living, kitchen and dining area opens up to a courtyard garden via a full-height wall of glass doors.

The restricted available space meant there was no room for a back bench. So the island incorporates the full kitchen workspace – housing the prep area, cooktop, sink, dishwasher and storage.

At one end of the island, a wall of cabinetry contains a large pantry, oven, integrated fridge and crockery cupboards, and continues into the open-plan living area.

At the other end of the island is a round, built-in table for six, sitting adjacent to the sliding doors that open out onto the courtyard.

New timber flooring continues up the back wall, as a modern nod to the wall linings seen in old cottage kitchens, while also acting as a textural contrast to the white cabinetry.

The TIDA judges were impressed with the way such an attractive, airy and functional kitchen has been created, despite the limited space available.
