It’s hard to believe a warehouse conversion could result in a dark and poky space, but that’s just what the first incarnation of this kitchen was. It’s no wonder then that the owners were disappointed and sought a fresh design by Mint Kitchen Group to transform the room and tap into its potential. The original space was opened and its uninviting mood was replaced with a welcoming one and a design that provided a place for the family to gather around its central island bench. The renovation also provided the opportunity to improve the storage facilities of the kitchen, so lift-up overhead cabinets were added as well as drawers fitted with Hettich soft-close technology. However, installing extra storage proved a challenge, as it had to be designed around a structural pole that stands in the middle of the room. This was successfully accomplished and even the owners’ wish for the refrigerator to be integrated into the cupboards was realised. This kitchen no longer resembles its small and isolated predecessor — rather, it has become a functional and ambient part of the family home. Designed by Albert Zarb and built by Mint Kitchen Group, mintkitchengroup.com.au

 

 

EXPERT TIP: “The black glass island backing acts as a mirror to make the kitchen feel larger than it is,” reveals designer Albert Zarb.
