THE WIN­NER

THE DE­SIGN

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. •
