A modern take on a grand country kitchen

“The owners of this kitchen, located in the picturesque Southern Highlands of NSW, were inspired by the grand country homes of North America where they spent much of their working lives. Occupying a substantial 56m2 footprint including a walk-in pantry and separate scullery, the challenge was to create a kitchen that would integrate seamlessly into the spacious surrounds of their historic home. I saw the task in three parts. First, keeping the design symmetrical in relation to the architecture of the surrounding living room with its six metre high cathedral ceiling. Second, ensuring the large kitchen and adjacent pantry and scullery areas worked as a cohesive space. And finally, integrating the new kitchen in terms of style and scale with a large country home. The finished kitchen fits its idyllic, rural surrounds and effortlessly absorbs three fridges, ovens and sinks. Designed for a large circle of family and friends, it provides a grand level of country comfort.” Designer: Sue Terley for A-Plan Kitchens
