The brief given for this home, was quite simply to increase on the existing footprint of the kitchen with the adjoining living room to provide for the larger family setting. The owners were very much set on a Hampton's style with clean lines, with the decorative elements being picked up in the island bench features and the rangehood design.
A corner angled pantry was removed which gave scope back to providing simple clean lines for the joinery and a dedicated space for the cooking zone, as well as a washing zone with a butler's sink, a feature point overlooking the backyard pool. Additional tall storage was provided along the rear wall, including an appliance cabinet to hide all the clutter, fulfilling the brief for this busy family.
It was important to create a flow of space between indoor and outdoor settings, with the backyard pool an entertaining space. We installed a larger window, where the natural light that comes with this works beautifully with the white palette and the parquetry floor.
