Clever planning was required to provide functionality and beauty in this very petite galley kitchen tucked under a sloping roofline. A sense of space is gained through light flooding in from the two large windows. Appliances such as the refrigerator and freezer are built in to save space, and a retractable workbench also allows for flexible use of space. Storage is maximised in cleverly compacted corner pull-out shelves and large drawers.
Oak floorbaords are repeated as wall panelling, serving as both the splashback and the open shelf backing. The oak provides warmth while contrasting with and complementing the white gloss joinery. The elegantly thin ceramic benchtop surface is heat and scratch resistant, and is undestroyable. It is the star of the piece.
While the original layout of this unusual triangle-shaped ensuite bathroom was well-designed, its 80s fitout looked dated and badly in need of a face-lift.
Large tiles in shimmering black and matt concrete tones were used on the walls and floor. The walk-in shower, the white quartz vanity that floats above its light chrome structure, and the large mirrored shaving cabinet all increase the sense of space. Indirect lighting behind the cabinet as well as the two glass pendant lights in front of the mirror add to the elegance. Not just a feature, the pendants produce perfect lighting for make-up (or shaving!).
