    Design Solution

    Timber, stone, glass and metal have been brought together to create a stylish but functional centre to this home. These elements have been used to link the materials used on the external facade of the building.

    A curved island links the living and dining rooms. With its Sydney blue gum timber high top, glass shelving and checker plate stainless steel columns the island creates a stunning feature seen from every angle. The island also incorporates a curved custom wielded sink with storage below for cleaning aids and integrated dishwasher and refuges bins. The overhang of the reconstituted stone top invites interaction between guests and their hosts.

    A clean, uncluttered kitchen is created by the use of drawers, with appliances, cutlery and dinnerware all having its place. Every utensil is at your fingertips while cooking on the gas cooktop with the use of orgaline storage inserts to the soft closing stainless steel tandem box drawers. The large spaces on either side of the cooktop and oven allow plenty of room for cooking and the recessed downlights in the underside of the overhead cupboards provide ample task lighting for this purpose.

    Aluminium framed sparkle glass doors are used on all overhead cupboards and on the walk in pantry. Behind the corner doors hides a pantry that has been purpose designed with baskets for fruit and vegetables, pigeon holes for wine/ beverage storage and stepped shelving for all food storage needs. Glass and stainless steel have been used in the splashback and the curved theme has been continued with the use of the curved glass rangehood.

    The cabinetry has been finished in the striking colours of deep purple and lilac two pack which compliments the exterior architecture of the home. This kitchen has warmth, colour and personality creating the hub for this contemporary family dwelling.
