Congratulations to Pat de Pont of SGA, winner of the 2023 TIDA New Zealand Architect-designed Kitchen of the Year. See more of this kitchen designed ready for retirement

Watch a slide show of this winning kitchen, plus commentary from architect Pat de Pont

For this new home for a professional couple moving into retirement, high priority was given to accessibility and livability within the home, and to its relationship with the developing gardens.

Morning sun reaches the kitchen through the garden room, while evening sun is enjoyed from the outdoor dining area adjacent to the kitchen. 

Stacked sliders and level entry tiled floors blur the edge between outside and inside, allowing easy movement between spaces, and direct access to the adjacent herb and food gardens.

A sense of the garden landscape is brought further into the kitchen and living areas through the soft green colour of the walls and the lacquered green kitchen cabinetry. 

The green cabinet fronts contrast with the natural stone cooking area and the island bench, which becomes the focal point of this multi-functional space.

And Blum’s tip-on technology allows the clean detailing of the handle-less doors and drawers that can be opened with just a touch.

The TIDA judges felt this design ably demonstrates how a kitchen can meet the demands and needs of its owners, both now and into the future.
