Home' K and B : Kitchens and Bathroom 2009 Contents WA's Best Kitchens & Bathrooms 2009 99
appliances and the television were placed either side.
Centre drawers balanced the space, with equally
proportioned bench space either side of the hot plate.
The centre drawers' aluminium handles produced an
ultra-clean line throughout the zone.
To complete the area, a concealed Qasair rangehood
was centred over the hotplate with equal-sized overhead
cabinets with push latch doors placed either side.
The second zone was defined by the bin chutes'
placement, which were designed to send waste directly
to external council bins leaving no need for the client to
walk malodorous bin bags through the house.
The fridge and dishwasher were also installed in this
zone, plus ample space was available for the sink cabinet.
The abundance of space allowed for plenty of room to
wash up and accommodate two undermounted, square
line sinks and plumbed-in draining board. The third and
final zone was the island that lined up exactly in length
with the hot plate wall, resulting in perfect symmetry.
The island provides the kitchen three metres of
uninterrupted bench space for entertaining and
On the inner side of the island, a second dishwasher
and three enormous drawer banks continue the horizontal
aesthetic with the aluminium strip handles. Facing away
from the kitchen, the island has a generous overhang to
provide ample leg space.
Funky, translucent green stools add a splash of colour to
the stark kitchen and provide a perfect spot to watch the
television, enjoy a meal or spread out the morning paper.
The final product is the epitome of stylish minimalism
and is both a functional and discerning kitchen space.
