Plywood Playground


Turn up the gas and grab an apron as we delve into this earthy cooking space. Cocooned in concrete-look tiled floors and birch plywood-sheeted walls and ceiling, the space is purposefully industrial, which becomes evident when appraising its celebration of earthy materials.

In step with the Scandi/industrial style of the home, the main kitchen and pantry zone exude affluent minimalism with a mix of birch ply framework and black traceless doors, drawer fronts and panels.

The kitchen’s love affair with plywood extends to the shadowline and framing details, adding an opulent finish to the refined kitchen. Saddle tan leather pulls with brass core and matching wrapped leather slimline handles mingle with a Star Mini pull out mixer PVD in brushed bronze, LED strip task lighting to the underside of overheads, and a black Smeg Pyrolitic double oven.

Open shelving and a concealed rangehood enhance spacious, unimpeded elegance. Concrete benchtops are robust and moody, while the sink is located at one end of the lengthy kitchen island, leaving abundant bench space for preparing and dining or working and studying, whatever the occasion requires.

Green and lean, the vertical tiled splashback disperses vibrancy to the colour palette and highlights the Smeg-endowed cooking space. Decorative designer timber work comes into play with the black overhead framework with exposed plywood edging. A custom-made kitchen deserves to be lit with precision, and the Long John 5 pendant from Fred’s International does a fine job assisting the LED lighting scheme. Industrial and homely, there’s so much to love about this SpaceCraft kitchen.
