Mission Bay Kitchen
This kitchen was designed as part of a full refurbishment of a small apartment. The request was for a compact, well functioning, but also a beautiful space, with a light and fresh feel.
To open up the space, one wall of the kitchen was removed and replaced with a slatted, black-stained timber screen to support an existing beam – giving a soft screening of the island bench and kitchen from the living area.
Wherever possible appliances have been integrated – even the small appliances are hidden away in a benchtop cupboard. This helps contribute to the clean, crisp aesthetic. The island provides a great transition from meal prep area to drinks and entertaining space, and there’s a small wine cabinet accessible from the dining space.
The material palette was deliberately kept to a minimum. The mix of white cabinetry, white Corian and softly veined white Neolith benchtops is accented by the negative-detailed black-stained oak handles and shelving that slices through the white with dramatic effect. Soft grey oak flooring and clever use of LED strip lighting completes the picture.
