's brief was to create an entertainer’s dream kitchen. A busy professional couple, they requested something glossy and impressive including a wine cellar with freedom to move walls to suit the design. To create a multi-use, functional space the kitchen was designed into an L shape with a central island which functions as both a central seating hub and houses the wine/beverage fridges for ease of access when entertaining.
Featuring a Copacabana granite for the island including a substantial concealed internal metal frame to cantilever the top. To utilise the extended ceiling height we suspended a bulkhead over the island. The bulkhead incorporated multi coloured LED up lighting as well as downlights. Fixings for the bulkhead were incorporated into the ceiling space during construction.
All drawers and lift systems utilise BLUM servo drive technology to create a streamlined effect.
The wine cellar has a concealed glass sliding door over – custom made stainless dowels support bottles of wine with floating shelves & concealed LED lighting around perimeter for a dramatic effect when entering via the stairs.
Stainless steel tops ran into the bifold window – the extra depth within the window was utilised for a panama fitting to keep drinks cold while cooking outside on the barbeque.
Hafele Hawa fold-back pocket doors conceal the pantry area with a push to open extendable bench top.
