The kitchen is comprised of three primary components. The first is the full height joinery wall – part of a wood lined volume in the centre of the home. This accommodates taller kitchen elements, including the refrigerator and pantry.
The second element is the rear perimeter cabinetry which includes the sink, dishwasher and stove below bench height. The back bench is free of overhead cupboards and incorporates a mirror splashback recessed into the wall.
The third part of the kitchen is the island bench which floats free in the space and offers a clear prep surface able to be used from all sides.
All three components are in a pared-back palette of Hoop Pine veneer and white laminate. And the white and wood surfaces don’t stand alone – they’re a continuation of the joinery style seen in other connected spaces.
“The kitchen is strategically zoned to make it easy for two people to use the kitchen at once.
“So, whether it’s making a cup of tea, loading the dishwasher, or prepping for lunch or dinner, no one gets in any one else’s way."
For example, the pantry, cutlery drawer, bin drawer and benchtop power point for kettle and toaster are all in proximity, creating an efficient work triangle for getting breakfast or a coffee.
Similarly, sink, dishwasher and bin drawer are all under the rear benchtop, with large drawers opposite in the island making loading the dishwasher or washing items in the sink easy.
