One Tree Hill Kitchen
One of the primary requirements for this large, contemporary kitchen for a busy family was for a multi-zoned space where individual members of the family could work independently, or come together as a group for entertaining or events.
Accommodating these needs required some intricate space planning and lateral thinking – not least was the design of the large kitchen island that cleverly steps down into the lounge, extending the bench space, creating a ‘leaner’ area which contains a drinks fridge and storage for glasses.
The original kitchen was an L-shape, with a short return that restricted movement into and around the kitchen. The new kitchen retains this L shape, but the return was dropped in favour of a small island/table (moveable) that dramatically improves workflow and accessibility.
The grey-green colour and Shaker-style door and drawer panels, along with aged-metal paint effect and timber accents are all in keeping with the style of the rest of the home and contribute to a warm and inviting space. A subtly veined benchtop completes the look.
