THE DE­SIGN

Part of a larger ren­o­va­tion, the con­cept for this kitchen sought to sim­plify the de­sign and max­imise the use of space while com­ple­ment­ing the ex­ist­ing fea­tures of the home. Two bor­der­ing walls of cab­i­netry were built in and a cen­tral is­land was cre­ated to vis­ually sup­port the weight of a cus­tom-made range­hood de­signed to bring a sense of in­ti­macy to the gen­er­ous space.

Dark ash ve­neer and a stone bench­top com­bine to cre­ate a sub­tle com­plex­ity that’s en­dur­ing and time­less. The pow­der-coat fin­ishes of the range­hood and cen­tral pivot door give a sub­tle so­phis­ti­ca­tion, with a fine metal­lic mixed through the char­coal base.

Light­ing is used ex­ten­sively too, il­lu­mi­nat­ing the is­land and range­hood and the perime­ter of the cab­i­netry. Doors and draw­ers that open and ac­ti­vate un­der­stated light­ing high­light the qual­ity fin­ishes and in­serts through­out. •
