Upland Road Kitchen

The Owner’s brief was to improve the functionality and flow of the kitchen and to provide strong visual interest.  We removed the sink bench under the window and added French doors and a small deck to capture the morning sun, letting in more light and providing a greater sense of space. At the other end of the room, a single standard entry door was removed and was replaced by large double cavity slider doors.  

The layout of the kitchen is now a streamlined galley design with a longer island containing the sink. Inspired by the leadlight windows, blackened steel was added as a key design element. The overhead cupboard section has fluted, smokey glass inserts with blackened steel frames.  The fluted design element has been repeated on the back of the island panels.

The soft lines and colour of Dekton Opera for the benchtop and splashback contrasts the strong vertical design elements of the framed steel and the vertical fluted glass and island panels. Brushed matt black handles have been used for the drawers and matt black Fisher and Paykel handles for the integrated fridge and pantry.

A pantry is hidden behind pocket doors and contains a benchtop, perforated steel baskets, internal drawers, shelving and LED strip lighting. A linear matt black pendant with smokey glass globes is complemented by downlights for task lighting and LED strip lighting. The finished design has created a more spacious, light-filled kitchen space which fits seamlessly into this home.
