Precision, attention to detail and an appreciation of the finer things in life are qualities often associated with German culture. So when the German owners of this beautiful home chose a company to design and build their new kitchen, they wanted premium quality in every detail: materials, design, finish and service.
The previous kitchen in this home was so far gone as to be almost completely non-functional. Not only was it a cramped space in a very small room, but it was also entirely outdated and falling to pieces. The clients wanted their new kitchen to have an ultra-modern, minimalist design that still suited their Australian lifestyle. And, although there was not a huge amount of space to work with, the new kitchen makes the best possible use of the room available and is a free-flowing and functional area.
Even though the clients desired a minimalist look, they still wanted the kitchen to have maximum visual impact, so this was created by combining an array of high-end materials and textures: the piano-finish Ebony Macassar natural veneer, black-painted glass, automotive high-gloss lacquer, stainless steel, Calacutta Oro marble and Staron Tempest all combine to create a sophisticated and visually stunning space.
The wall-oven feature wall is suspended 300mm off the floor and 300mm off the ceiling, which creates a floating look and acts as a room divider, providing access either side to a functional scullery that is cleverly hidden behind the main kitchen.
Everything in this kitchen is soft-close, including handles, drawers, overhead doors and lift mechanisms, while Blum’s SERVO-DRIVE has been incorporated into the central Miele appliance wall feature for enhanced convenience and efficiency. LED strip lighting underneath the kickboards, around the rangehood box and above and below the wall ovens provides a stylish touch, while the custom-made stainlesssteel light rack above the island bench provides further lighting and a handy spot to store glasses or alcohol.
No matter which way you look at it, this is much more than a standard kitchen. The blending of materials and textures creates maximum visual impact, while every spot of space has been maximised. To sum it up, this is a kitchen that boasts quality in every aspect.
