Located in the centre of the home with no external windows, this Spence kitchen was dull and uninspiring. The brief was very specific – add character by using a dark and moody palette with a native timber feature. The reinvented kitchen is flooded with natural light thanks to an impressive skylight. The new pantry is an organisational dream with clever drawer designs, racks and ample bench space adding to the functionality. Extensive 3D modelling ensured best use of available space and the custom-made spotted gum handles added the finishing touch. The client is delighted with their new light filled, purposeful kitchen.
Paul Tilse Architects engaged Created Bespoke for this project, and every detail was methodically examined as is the norm with Paul Tilse designs. This Yarralumla kitchen is of the highest quality with meticulous attention to detail. The joinery finished flush with detailed shadow lines, and solid American oak timber island legs added interest. A mix of 2pac poly, stone benchtops and splash backs were used. Likewood, a beautiful alternative to veneers was chosen to add warmth to the finish. Designed for a young family, integrating the kitchen, dining and study areas was important to create a social hub to meet the lifestyle needs of all the family.
The character of this O’Connor home, including the award-winning light-filled kitchen was inspired by mid-century design elements, including a stone wall that is delightfully conspicuous both inside and out. The rich navy joinery and timber detailing has presented a captivating kitchen with a grand personality. Very importantly, particularly with such a bold colour palette, fingerprints belong in the past. Nanotechnology has delivered an ingenious product – Nover Fenix NTM Matt Laminate an attractive hardwearing, easy care, anti-fingerprint surface. Add to this Blackbutt timber, Qasair concealed rangehood, Miele induction cooktop and oven, an integrated fridge, semi integrated dishwasher, and an undermount sink and you have an exquisite, functional space.
This wonderful 1970’s home in Forrest was crying out for a sympathetic makeover. The brief for the kitchen component was to create a functional new heart that seamlessly assimilated with the other remodeled indoor and outdoor spaces. A priority was to respect the integrity of the original architecture. To reflect the quality of the property, top of the line appliances and tapware were carefully selected, and porcelain floor tiles, natural marble stone and coloured joinery applied, to complement the existing refurbished elements. Rare slabs of marble were sourced and hand selected by a specialist Stone Mason. Without doubt the stunning marble is the main feature of the kitchen.
