Davinia Sutton Detail by Davinia Sutton
The uncluttered design of this kitchen has a sense of ‘rawness’ to it, yet stays true to the modern architectural style of the home. It’s set out in a galley format that extends into a working pantry that allows the food preparation areas to remain separate from the main space when entertaining and is equipped with a second sink, fridge, microwave and dishwasher, plus wine storage and hidden and exposed storage.
In the main kitchen, a marble bench and splashback run the length of the rear wall, housing the cooking zone and accompanied by drawer storage. On the opposite side, the preparation and washing areas feature a large raw-cast concrete bench. Storage hidden behind cabinetry and integrated appliances help to maintain clean lines.
Overhead, a slatted timber louvre conceals a heating system and provides a textural effect, the striking dark veneer contrasting with the concrete and honed marble. •
