Franklin Road, Ponsonby, Townhouse Renovation

The space available for this kitchen was so small it required extra attention to detail and clever storage design.  The owner, the principal of a local architectural practise, worked with Poggenpohl, the perfect choice for this challenge, to achieve an interesting and functional design outcome.  They used Poggenpohl’s +Artesio concept to add timber and stainless-steel elements for interest and shelving storage.

The chosen appliances were Miele, including the fully-integrated dishwasher and refrigerator/freezer. The six-element hob on the quite-small island is a testament to the owners’ passion for cooking. The Evoline Port on the island gives them power for small appliances.  The Gutmann Campo II ceiling extractor gives highly-effective extraction, even with the 2.4 metre stud height. The benchtops are twelve-millimetre-thick porcelain and the island waterfalls down to the floor on three sides to give the impression from the lounge and dining room of a solid stone box. On the back wall, the Dornbracht mixer is wall-mounted in the panelling.

Complementing the kitchen is a small Poggenpohl laundry which doubles as a powder room for the ground floor. Bedrooms and other bathrooms are all upstairs. Both the kitchen and laundry are examples of how Poggenpohl can overcome the demands of small spaces. The clients find both work really well and this kitchen was highly commended in the TIDA kitchen awards competition.
