Elderton Homes’ Roycroft 31 design (left) won the Best Kitchen in a Display Home award at the 2016 HIA awards.
It’s a generously sized kitchen, designed as the heart of the home and central to the home’s open-plan living area, creating a kitchen that is the social hub for the family.
Elderton design manager Greg Hendy believes the materials used gave it an edge.
“It’s contemporary and minimalist, but it’s still warm, not cold,” he says.
“It’s got pendant lights and stools and natural timbers, it’s broadly appealing as well with the colour palette, it’s not something that would polarise opinions.”
