Cool and sleek, this kitchen offers
a generous space to accommodate
casual entertaining and cooking.
The kitchen is integrated into the open
main living space, providing a central hub
for the family to enjoy their house, with
direct access to the adjoining summer
and winter courtyards.
Keen to utilise earthy materials
that emanate a sense of tactility, the
owners decided upon strong, grained
timber veneer to the cabinetry, which
complements the dark lustre Nero
Zimbabwe Natural Stone benchtops
from Attica in Subiaco.
An earthy material palette of grained timber
veneer and dark lustre natural stone make for
a moody and contemporary kitchen
WORDS Claire Watkins PHOTOGRAPHY Adrian Lambert
The dark side
Given the dark palette, a south-facing
overhead skylight has been designed to run
the length of the kitchen, allowing natural
light to catch the surfaces.
Fringe Architects incorporated a
mirrored splashback, which is becoming
increasingly popular for its ability to inf use
a sense of space. It is easy to clean and
allows the chef to maintain visual contact.
By seamlessly combining old-world
materials with modern and light-catching
features, the kitchen becomes a warm and
inviting place for family and friends.
