Brief ‘Next Generation’
Who are we without family?
This question was pivotal in creating the perfect generational nook.
At the core of this space are grandparents wanting to savour life with their young grandchildren. This ever-growing family needed as much space as possible, with solutions sought in masking the pantry and using ample drawers for storage and accessibility, regardless of age.
Modernity goes unnoticed if executed with precision. Choosing white cabinetry with a Calacatta gold benchtop exuded a subtle elegance brought to life by the glances of wood. Acrylic cabinetry cultivates refreshing clean lines while bringing easy-clean capabilities to the space.
Functionality to encompass a child-friendly environment was essential. The decision to remove all handles permitted little ones to move freely through the kitchen and not worry about accidents. The peninsula is also cornerless, utilising the end wall, not only framing the kitchen but providing a safety solution. Inquisitive young ones' never want to miss out, resulting in the optimal bar solution for children by constructing a 160mm overhang, making the space comfortable for young ones to enjoy at mealtimes.
To capture generational harmony, the space could only be timeless. White on white breathes new life in a welcoming and safe atmosphere for all ages to enjoy. Their mornings have now transformed from a dysfunctional kitchen to those filled with pancakes and laughter. What more could grandparents ask for.
