cohesive open-plan

A Kitchen That is Opulent in Scale


There’s an art to creating cohesive open-plan living spaces, one that this kitchen’s designers have clearly mastered.

Built by Enigma Interiors, the seamless integration of the living and kitchen areas of this spacious, newly-built home are a triumph of design and quality craftsmanship. But it’s the attention to detail that truly sets it apart.

In the generous kitchen, Shaker-style joinery and natural Carrara marble benches and splashback mirror the elegance of the sitting room fireplace.

Meanwhile, detailed mouldings, ornate lampshades, upholstered furniture and dark timber accents further enhance the look of traditional, refined sophistication that carries harmoniously across both zones.

Appearance has obviously been a prime consideration here but, in the kitchen particularly, practicality and functionality have been equally well catered to, taking into account the requirements of the owners’ large family.

The enormous room boasts storage in abundance, with two islands — a framing L-shaped benchspace, with seating for five, and a central, timber-topped inset — both offering in-built cabinetry. An adjoining butler’s pantry provides even more space, including an in-built sit-down desk area.

High-quality integrated appliances include an aesthetically boxed rangehood and an undermount sink with chrome mixer set beneath a shuttered window, completing the near perfect picture.

The culmination of this design results in a timeless blend of form and function that will, undoubtedly, be at the heart of this family home for generations.
