Creating a space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing is a challenge many homeowners face. The team at Dravitzki Brown Architecture took on this challenge with enthusiasm when they were given the task of creating a design for William Rees. Situated on a rural estate, the team was tasked with creating a design that would bring out the best of the natural lighting available.  

The result is a stunning kitchen that has been designed and crafted to expert standards. Every element of the design has been meticulously planned, from the open plan layout that allows for easy movement, to the careful selection of materials. Together, these elements combine to create a functional and beautiful space that is sure to stand the test of time. 

The kitchen also features a range of modern amenities, such as under cabinet lighting and top-of-the-range appliances. These features are carefully integrated with the overall aesthetic of the design, creating a cohesive and contemporary look. Natural lighting has been used to great effect throughout, with strategically placed windows that maximise the amount of light that enters the room.
