Hillary and Glen bought the property in 2013 and wanted a large sun-filled extension for their kitchen/dining/living area. They were looking for a more minimalist style and a light airy room. The kitchen was at the front of the house originally so this was moved to the back and an architect was brought in design an extension where the roof pitches upwards away from the building to get large glass walls/doors. The client wanted this to be a sociable room where cooking/entertaining and relaxing could all be done together.
The key to Glenn & Hilary’s new kitchen was creating a bright, airy space to live, cook & entertain in. The design achieves this with the reflective furniture in a metallic Cubanit finish; with simple clean white silestone tops.
The finishes chosen were designed to create a balance of practicality and to be complimentary of the surroundings, meaning that the materials needed to be robust enough to provide the clients with a kitchen that was functional, and that would complement not only the other social areas of the room but the extended outlook to the garden.
"The design works really well and suits us as a family. I can get on with the cooking while the children do homework or watch TV. The whole space is the focal point of the house now."
