Akaroa Kitchen

Website

The clients were building a new home and wanted a slick and sophisticated kitchen with a working pantry with boiling water tap and drinks space, and a comfortable table height seating area. They liked the handle-less look.

The home was a modern simple form with dark exterior. The shape if the kitchen was dictated by the space available and the location of the large sliding doors leading out to east and west decks, both with fabulous views.

We wanted to create a subtly detailed yet striking kitchen retaining the minimalism of the home. Popping central joinery out of the back wall of joinery by 50 mm and framing it with 12 mm shark--nosed Corian and repeating this feature by framing the entire island in Corian with the same profile, creates an elegant and beautifully finished slick look.  The dark joinery looks like wall panelling which the kitchen sits into, but it cunningly hides functional spaces and storage.

Having push to open on all the joinery including fridge and freezer and bi-folding doors ensured the sleek look. The integrated Corian Duo bowls also flowed seamlessly from the bench. The seating area was made from solid teak and stained to match the back wall dark Melamine.

The LED strip to the hob area and the island add the streamline floating effect at night. The 2 slim hanging light fittings over the island provide excellent dimmable light and enhance with the slick style.
