Traditional kitchen with modern touches

The kitchen converted from 1800's winery has a few modern twists such as two islands and minimal cabinetry, which stop it from feeling dated while still retaining the aged character.

The stone-clad main building appears to be an 1800s winery which has been renovated and converted to a home at some stage. Inside, flooring and ceiling boards were deliberately selected to give an aged character in keeping with an old winery building.


But once inside more contemporary elements are revealed. For example, the kitchen is characterised by two 150 x 150cm islands. The room is so big, one island would have been monstrous, so it was broken up by designer Julian Cohen of ARC Design. The butcher block look of the tops still gives a link to the past, however.

There's also a full-on scullery, which is essentially a second kitchen, albeit with no stove. The amount of cabinetry in the kitchen is kept to a minimum by having a well-equipped scullery. This results in a more European look.
