Teppanyaki? Yes please!

A teppanyaki bar is probably the last thing you'd expect in someone's home – but that's just the beginning for this modern Mediterranean

A Modernist interpretation of archetypal Mediterranean architecture was chosen as the design for a patriotic Sicilian family's home by architect Anthony Rechichi.

On both the exterior and interior, the house appears as a layered composition of horizontal and vertical planes.

This fully equipped outdoor kitchen incorporates an island with a mirrored base and a granite bar top that serves as a teppanyaki table. It's part of a large indoor-outdoor entertaining area.

A lowered timber slat ceiling provides a more intimate space for the outdoor kitchen-bar area.


Both the home's indoor and outdoor kitchens were designed by Leon House. 

The galley-style indoor kitchen teams white lacquered cabinets with a marble island, timber bar top and timber veneer doors that conceal a drinks cabinet. 

The semi-freestanding cooking centre also resembles an island, providing views through to a second prep area behind. This continues the sense of layering that is evident throughout the house.
