In turning a hanger originally built to house a classic car collection into a kitchen, inspiration was drawn from the rustic beams, oversized doors and chunky steel hardware. The strong angles of the island allow it to overlap into the living area, and its thick French oak timber top contrasts beautifully with the brushed stainless benchtop. The front of the island is framed in steel and backlit to reveal the warmth of the timber void behind it and offer a romantic glow for evening entertaining.
Celebrating both old and new, a steel partition and sliders separate the main kitchen from the scullery; the two directional sliders can expose various servery options or close off the scullery.
Stainless steel drawer fronts pair with perforated steel shelving that houses a rangehood, wraps the fridge and cantilevers into a sun-soaked relaxation nook with a view of the garden. •
