This penthouse apartment has stunning views but hadn’t been touched since it was originally built in the early 2000’s.  

So, it was out with the old and with the new. 

The kitchen was on the back wall of the open plan dining and living zone and has been the starting point for the progressive and total renovation of the apartment.   

While the original kitchen was already positioned to take in the views, the revamped design had to address the challenge of fixed services that had to be retained.

In particular, this meant the voids on either side of the kitchen footprint could not be moved to allow walls to be straightened and gain additional space. 

The only exception was being able to extend the kitchen to provide a bar area in the dining room. 

Using Gaggenau allowed a large number of appliances to be accommodated in what is a  relatively small kitchen and, most importantly, they could be incorporated within the length of the fixed angled walls.

The TIDA judges felt that use of antique white granite on the island, and in strategic positions on the perimeter wall, means this kitchen now makes a strong statement in the room, while it  is also ideally designed for daily functionality and frequent entertaining.
