Spatial awareness


The owners wanted their kitchen to be a beautiful, inviting space for their family and friends to enjoy

“It was important for the kitchen to be designed effectively in proportion to the large, adjoining living room, which meant that utilising the height played a significant role in achieving this. Shaker-style cabinets with custom moulding and panels add a traditional touch to the space and provide extensive cabinetry. A butler’s pantry was also designed within the kitchen for extra storage and meal preparation space. The large island bench has a visually stunning quartz marble benchtop and is perfect for entertaining and sharing meals, which the herringbone subway tile splashback further enhances the classic style and is an interesting design element. This kitchen has a nice balance of form and function for a family who loves to cook and entertain.

As the kitchen is part of such a large open-plan living and entertaining area, both inside and out, the owners were keen to conceal the pantry, small appliances and preparation area, which is why we designed such a large butler’s pantry with all open shelving and open drawers
