Winning a major prize in a national student design competition is a certain springboard for a future career.

Sarah Burrows, winner of the NKBA 2014 Smeg Student Challenge Award, has followed her win with commissions that include this family kitchen.

Burrows says the owners wanted a streamlined, contemporary kitchen with a simple, highly functional layout. To this end, the designer specified a mix of white semi-gloss lacquered cabinets and Laminex Timber Veneers Allure Ash. Recessed aluminium handles enhance the sleek look. The kitchen has a galley layout, with an island featuring a cantilevered benchtop and waterfall side.

"We used 12mm Heritage Hardware Euro stone for the top of the island, but mounted this on a substrate to achieve a more substantial look."

In addition to a vertical pull-out pantry next to the oven tower, the kitchen has a walk-in pantry with a second sink. There is also a benchtop cupboard with a Tambour door, for small appliances.

Smeg appliances include the Linea SFPA140 colour touch-screen built-in oven, FQ60XPA French Door fridge-freezer, CK2000HC powerpack rangehood and SIH5935B induction cooktop.

The designer says her winning design also featured Smeg appliances.

"There was a specific brief to work to," she says. "The kitchen needed to suit two owners who were not very tall. They didn't require a lot of storage, but they did need recycling facilities. The aesthetics were a little more tricky one of the owners wanted a classic look, while the other preferred retro. Along with the Smeg appliances, I introduced open shelving to the end of the kitchen, and gave the island a more retro feel."
