Our client’s love affair with beautiful Gaggenau appliances provided the starting point for this recent kitchen design. They were adamant that we create a sense of performance to the kitchen, where family or guests could be seated around the home chef and experience the cooking process. Previously a plain white kitchen with a bland black benchtop, our client also asked for creative materiality that would be a distinct contrast to its predecessor.

The Gaggenau appliances are centralised in the kitchen’s design and the extractor unit that can remotely controlled to adjust to individual chef heights, is front and centre of the performance space.

Warm, natural materials were utilised to elevate the moody, textural feel of this kitchen space. Black framed, bespoke birch ply doors are carved with a random lineal design to unite the herringbone oak floors and the geometrical detailing throughout the house and to draw in the black stained oak under bench cabinetry.

Apart from two feature full length fridge pulls the handless cabinetry enables the textural integrity of the full height doors and Infinity Brown quartzite benchtops to shine.
