A slick, contemporary kitchen that mixes timber with industrial surfaces perfectly
This home in Northbridge, Sydney, might have gorgeous views and plenty of natural light, but it also proved a challenging location for a luxury kitchen renovation. Walls at different angles as well as the positioning of the staircase were the main difficulties that had to be overcome. However, we used these issues to our advantage, incorporating them as features of the modern-style creation.
The brief also demanded a comfortable dining area for at least five people, so a custom-made table was commissioned. Two different tones of veneer coupled with stainless steel and marble make this a standout project, and the stainless-steel benchtop is mirrored in the floating light plane above, a unique feature and one that really draws the eye.
The client is ecstatic with the outcome. The kitchen has become the heart of their home and implements a well-considered balance between form and function.”
