DE­SIGN­ERS HEATH BALD­WIN & HAY­DEN BAGNALL

“The con­ver­gence of form and func­tion is seam­less in this prac­ti­cal, balanced fam­ily home that is si­mul­ta­ne­ously strik­ing and unique. We en­deav­oured to cre­ate a space more like a piece of sculp­ture. With the use of de­signer and in­te­grated Fisher & Paykel ap­pli­ances we were able to dis­guise the gen­eral func­tion and achieve a seam­less aes­thetic. We’re al­ways chal­lenged with our clients’ prac­ti­cal needs ver­sus de­sign aes­thetic so in or­der to ex­e­cute the black base cab­i­netry to per­fec­tion we se­lected the 900mm Fisher & Paykel oven. It was big enough for the fam­ily, while the brushed stain­less steel and black glass made it work per­fectly in the space. The Rich Bril­liant Will­ing pen­dant over the is­land is also a favourite; from a dis­tance it’s so sim­ple but the closer you get the more you can ap­pre­ci­ate its beauty. It also pro­duces a sub­tle glow when on that cre­ates lovely am­bi­ent light­ing in the room.” What lux­ury item did you choose for this space re­gard­less of bud­get? “The is­land fab­ri­ca­tion out of mar­ble – with rounded cor­ners!”

DINE IN Ex­cep­tional at ten­tion to det ail en sures this well- equipped kitchen trul y is the heart of th e hom e.

DE­SIGNER CHELSEA HING “This kitchen was de­signed as the ul­ti­mate cook’s com­pan­ion! Full to the brim with all the prac­ti­cal con­sid­er­a­tions for a keen cook, with stor­age for days and every­thing to hand, while cre­at­ing per­son­al­ity and sophistication in the cen­tre of the house where this fam­ily spends all their time to­gether.” What is your favourite kitchen de­sign el­e­ment? “My favourite would be the is­land bench with the cus­tom-de­signed book-edge de­tail on the stone and the bar­ley twist leg. The client wanted a be­spoke kitchen full of colour, pat­tern and whimsy. These de­tails brought a strong per­son­al­ity to the space without over­pow­er­ing it.” chelseahing.com.au
