Spacious living: kitchen design

In this stunning kitchen an island bench is used to create more space for cooking and to help create natural work flow


“The transformation from the original enclosed kitchen to this well-lit and spacious room dramatically highlights the design possibilities that can be achieved with lateral thinking. Our clients wanted to open up the kitchen to improve its practicality and work flow by creating zones for different functions.


The right-hand wall of the kitchen was removed to open the space to the living area and create room for an island bench that could function on all sides. The adjoining room was converted into an expansive and fully functioning butler’s pantry, giving the kitchen symmetry and balance.

The central hub is the feature island unit, which has become the cooking zone and promotes a natural flow throughout the space. Light streams in from three sides, bringing an open and inviting feel to this modern kitchen.”
