Two Queens­land com­pa­nies came out on top for kitchen de­sign in this year’s HIACSR Aus­tralian Home of the Year awards.

Enigma In­te­ri­ors in Ca­pal­aba took out the pres­ti­gious Aus­tralian Kitchen of the Year award, pro­vid­ing a show­stop­ping mo­saic-tile splash­back as the vis­ual an­chor for the en­tire room (above).

The judges called it a stand­out fea­ture, not­ing “vi­brant cre­ativ­ity, skilled and pa­tient work­man­ship”. They said this un­for­get­table el­e­ment worked as a piece of art for the open-plan liv­ing room.

“Beau­ti­fully ex­e­cuted, other fea­tures in­clude: full ap­pli­ance in­te­gra­tion, a work­ing but­ler’s pantry with stain­lesssteel bench­tops and an ad­di­tional oven for the caterer in the fam­ily; and booth­style seat­ing for en­ter­tain­ing or ev­ery­day liv­ing,” they said.

Sub­lime Ar­chi­tec­tural In­te­ri­ors in Sum­ner Park won the Aus­tralian Kitchen De­sign award, with judges say­ing there was plenty to ad­mire in its kitchen (be­low), from origami pen­dant lights to a sil­ver acrylic-en­cased is­land bench­top.

They said the lin­ear de­sign seam­lessly in­te­grated the in­side of the home with the out­door com­po­nent of the kitchen.

“The mix­tures of grey tones con­trast with the tim­ber de­tail­ing, show­ing the thought­ful use of mul­ti­ple ma­te­ri­als and the su­pe­rior at­ten­tion to the tech­ni­cal de­tails needed to ex­e­cute this de­sign,” the said.
