Kitchen with Green Benchtop Design Ideas
Building Designers Association of Australia
The clients were inspired to renovate following exposure to Zen architecture while honeymooning in Japan. The architectural brief was to deliver a modern Australian home that serves as a private, meditative retreat that would also cater to a buzzing family as their relationship evolves; and transform into a welcoming and generous entertaining space. The home would need to maximise the potential of the sites orientation and create a strong connection to generous and versatile outdoor spaces including sheltered entertaining areas and spacious areas for planting and lawn. It was essential that elements of the existing residence be retained where possible to reduce waste, however disguised so that the final product was effectively a new home.

This kitchen remodel involved the demolition of several intervening rooms to create a large kitchen/family room that now connects directly to the backyard and the pool area. The new raised roof and clerestory help to bring light into the heart of the house and provides views to the surrounding treetops. The kitchen cabinets are by Italian manufacturer Scavolini. The floor is slate, the countertops are granite, and the ceiling is bamboo. Design Team: Tracy Stone, Donatella Cusma', Sherry Cefali Engineer: Dave Cefali Photo by: Lawrence Anderson
In Detail Interiors
This English Tudor architectural home combines classic styling, fixtures and fittings with modern convenience. The kitchen is quite large yet the client did not want it to feel that way. In order to keep some of the coziness she desired, we opted to put in a Wolf two hob electrical unit in the island where the cook spends most of her time. This allows her to do “quick cooking” in the mornings while keeping conversation going with her two young sons and maintains a galley layout within the larger footprint of the space. This hob also does double duty when entertaining, acting as a hot plate for service and an extra burner for prepping foods by the caterer. The Pro refrigerator was chosen to “lighten up” the heavier feel of the English Tudor design with some contemporary pizzazz. This unexpected bit of modernism along with a sleek Blanco faucet adds just the right touch of Wow! The second island is considered the entertaining island as it helps direct the traffic flow in and around the kitchen area as well as adds some visual definition of the kitchen and breakfast area. Again,keeping it cozy and functional in a large space. This island is home to a subzero integrated wine refrigerator and bar sink. We included casual seating for the two boys at the main island and additional bar seating at the entertainment island. This use of dual islands keeps the kitchen from feeling too large. The brick alcove encloses a 48 in wolf dual fuel range with antique walnut shelves on each side. The alcove is a focal point of the design however it blends in with the surrounding cabinetry to appear as it has been there for decades.
