When you entertain on a regular basis, you need a kitchen that's up to the challenge and it makes no difference if most of your entertaining happens in the city or at the beach.

The owners of this extensively remodelled beach house wanted a kitchen that would make light work of meal preparation and cleanup. They also wanted a kitchen with a sleek, contemporary aesthetic that would fit in with the beachside environment.

This Poggenpohl kitchen island and some perimeter cabinets feature a textural white pine decor panel. The cabinets on the front of the island are motor driven for handle-less access. The high-gloss lacquered cabinets bounce light back into the room. The tall bank of cabinets incorporates an integrated fridge-freezer and a pull-out pantry. There is also a pull-out unit next to the ovens.

They consequently specified a Poggenpohl kitchen from Akzente, designed by Lara Farmilo. High-gloss lacquered cabinets in Pebble Grey are teamed with white pine decor panels along the top drawers of the island and perimeter base cabinets for a subtle textural contrast.

"The handles were designed to keep the look sleek and clean lined," Farmilo says. "And because this is an open-plan living area we have concealed the appliances by integrating them into the cabinetry wherever possible. We also placed the two ovens in the side cabinetry, so they are not too visible from the living area."

Another feature of the kitchen is the deep island top. A 12mm Silestone benchtop sits on a reinforced cantilevered extension clad in the white pine decor panel. This doubles as a bar or breakfast area. Farmilo says the kitchen is large enough to cater easily to a holiday crowd, and there is ample storage, which is essential in a beach house.
