Form, function and fun are the focus of this kitchen design
“This kitchen is a marvellous blend of form, function and fun. Our brief was to introduce space and light into a somewhat dark, confined corner kitchen. The owners are art and design lovers, so the new kitchen needed to suit their personalities, lifestyle and the architectural style of this North Fitzroy apartment. Visually, everything centres on the striking glass splashback. A prominent piece of photography, the artwork injects vibrant colours and playful lines into the space.
The surrounding palette was drawn from this to achieve a perfect harmony of colour and texturethat flows from the kitchen into the adjacent living and dining areas, and outside onto the balcony. Bright, hard surfaces are integrated with beautiful soft timber finishes. Gloss-white cabinetry and Glacier White Corian® benches reflect the light to brighten the space. In a smaller apartment, the layout needed to improve the function, storage and flow of workspaces.
Every little detail was considered and is interconnected: each cabinet has a functional system, ensuring good storage and easy access; the Corian® benchtop with integrated sink is both minimal in design detail and easy to maintain; and, concealed behind beautiful timber cabinetry, the appliance space puts everything within easy reach. The result is an open-plan cooking and entertaining area that’s not only an eye-catching feature of the home, but also the engine room of everyday life and a pleasure to spend time in.”
