Looking to the future: a sustainable kitchen design

Sustainability is a major focus of this kitchen design, with materials chosen that are eco-friendly and long-lasting


“Our clients don’t just talk about environmental responsibility and sustainability, they live it. When they wanted to remodel the kitchen in their home at the Aldinga Eco Village, they needed to find a designer and builder who shared their sustainability concerns. That is where we stepped in. Beyond the fundamental environmental necessities, their dream was to create a mid-20th-century modern-style kitchen with a pop of colour and a large amount of storage.

With the very compact dimensions, the space had to be managed meticulously. We implemented smart storage solutions, such as pantry drawers, and used the back of the island bench as a dining nook. Environmentally friendly materials such as Novofibre, hoop pine plywood and low-VOC polish were chosen to meet environmental expectations and for their longevity.

The gorgeous orange hue of the cabinetry injects a pop of colour and culture, adding a modern twist. This unique kitchen shows you can be serious about the environment and still have fun with interiors.”
