The client was planning an extension and required an open plan room that was zoned into kitchen, dining and living spaces. The theme was clear from the outset with the client preferring dark colours, textured surfaces with industrial elements and clean lines.
The layout of the kitchen was designed to maximise the storage and flow in the space. The overall scheme was dark tones with industrial details. The kitchen comprised of handle-less Cemento Nero tall units with integrated Siemens appliances including, wine fridge, freezer with ice and water, coffee and ovens. Graphite base units with Dekton Sirus worktops harmoniously balanced with the tall units adding subtle texture to the design. Storage was incorporated on both sides of the island and a pocket door system offered the ultimate hidden space. This system is perfect for hiding away those small appliances or a useful food prep area, that can be quickly and conveniently closed away out of sight.
The introduction of Spekva wooden surfaces added warmth, texture and a natural element to the room. The matching custom table and original breakfast bar tied the spaces together and coordinated collectively with the exposed brick. The combination of wood, brick and cement created a cozy, inviting ambience.
Although the space was open plan, it was cleverly designed to give the client defined areas. The living room area with the contemporary fireplace making it welcoming and homely along with colourful soft seating. The lighting was the key to defining the dining and kitchen areas, with low feature pendants over the table and halo lighting built into the boxing above the island, giving the client flexibility.
