Benchtops feature an elegantly patterned quartzite, chosen for its serene beauty and earth-real character. Hand-picked at the suppliers, the Champagne stone with its textural grain and warm hues complement the oak cabinetry and waterbourne-finished floors
To encourage family connections, a hidden home-planning zone doubles for both home craft and games. Two solid oak drawers inside are exquisitely crafted with simple round finger openings and a place for everything.
Kitchen Architecture’s ‘Activity Zoning’ design methodology with accessible storage planned with intentionality, have been rigorously created throughout this kitchen to keep the flow and ergonomics at its prime.
The island continues the battened pleat-like story balanced in white, allowing the stone to shine. For mere delight, Toni carved out a delicate curve to shape a seated gathering place. Each exquisitely crafted batten remains equally spaced using radial mo
