Pre-fabricated homes, constructed on site are becoming far more common in the ever evolving building industry. This bespoke, Australian manufactured home presented a unique challenge as all kitchen walls were pre-determined and plans needed to be completed and submitted for wiring well ahead of time – before the home was even built! Working closely with the client ensured that the design would fit within the pre-fabrication company’s dimensions as well as meet all of their requirements.
This entertainers kitchen required generous space for family and friends, as well as a breakfast nook, spices and oil storage and open shelves for displaying various items collected over the years.
I specified a large 5mm thick stainless steel benchtop which gives the kitchen a light feel, whilst providing an expansive benchtop for entertaining.
Hidden away are the breakfast nook beside the fridge and tea towel pull out near the sink. These features met the customers’ requirements and assisted with a pet hate for having tea towels hanging in view.
The use of black cabinetry and rich earthy tones in the splash back create a relaxed feeling that nestles the kitchen into the green surroundings of Mangawhai.
