Stainless steel meets stone meets the warmth of wood veneer in this stand-out, architect-designed kitchen in an upmarket riverside apartment development by Giorgi Exclusive.

Besides being the hub of the home in terms of cooking and nurturing, a kitchen is also the central linking element for many large interiors. Catching the eye and also leading the eye past it to the views are both key needs in such a design.

This light, bright, spacious kitchen provides a seamless transition between luxurious indoor spaces and the expansive outdoor area beyond. Enhanced by the design architect's rich custom cabinetry design, the soft material palette evokes a warm, inviting atmosphere. The feature timber veneer is the perfect complement to the natural stone flooring while the reflective glass splashback and lacquered doors add depth and interest to the eye-catching design.

The back-lit framing to the rear elevation further draws focus and enhances the veneer. A good mix of feature and task lighting ensures the optimum lighting level for any cooking task.

In this new kitchen, the long lines on interior design, yacht, white, brown
In this new kitchen, the long lines on the chunky benchtop and minimalist recessed cabinet handles seem to lead the eye out to the views.

Appliances are integrated into the cabinetry, creating a balanced, streamlined backdrop. The linear stainless steel rangehood complements the long lines of the kitchen and adds another textural layer. The stainless steel kickboard makes for a clean break between the stone floor and crisp white cabinetry and also complements the stainless steel detailing on the appliances.

In terms of flow, the island with raised breakfast bar in a complementary stone allows everyone to be a part of the action. The lower stone top provides plenty of prep space and the differing heights mean everyone can be comfortable when cooking in this kitchen.

The inclusion of finger rails for lower drawers and doors are a minimalist, stylish solution. The large double sink is well positioned in the rear benchtop, with ample space either side as well as sufficient distance from the cooktop.

The warmth of the cabinet veneer in this apartment kitchen is continued right through the interior in the giant door frames and the dining table top.

With plenty of room to circulate and bench space for more than one chef to work at a time, this family kitchen offers a flexible space for one and all a perfect blend of form and function.
