Space, style and structure are the keys to this kitchen’s success, which adds contemporary finishes to a timeless design to adjoin the rear to the middle of the home.
A Smartstone Calacatta Blanco island benchtop arranges the room around its elegant functionality and gregarious insistence on facing seating options. Housing six cushioned wrap-around stools, an inbuilt wine fridge, storage drawers and cupboard, the luminous white bench is accented with charcoal veins and gold highlights, establishing this kitchen’s sleek monochromatic colour palette.
This space’s simplicity is at the core of both its usability and beauty. Routed handles allow for easy, understated access to the bountiful storage options, which include a Dispensa pantry with LeMans pull-out shelves. The fridge, dishwasher and rangehood are integrated into the cabinetry facade and, like the wall-mounted combination ovens and glossy black induction cooktop, are made by Miele. The LED strip lighting over the cooktop and the mirrored splashback panel combine with the hanging rose gold light fixtures to really make this kitchen shine. Timber floors complement the golden touches and ground this rear kitchen as the sparkling spine of this contemporary home.
