Symphony of Style

Not afraid to be bold, the owners of this contemporary architectural home on the Whitianga Waterways wanted a show-stopping kitchen that met the practical requirements of a big family who love to entertain.

A glamorous aesthetic has been achieved by selecting materials and textures that are stunning on their own, yet combine in a symphony of style.  

Competing light and dark elements are married together by the granite benchtop and splashback which provides dynamism and drama. Mosaic tiles in a pearlescent gold adorn the wall and scullery splashback, creating a soft balance.

The full-sized open-shelf scullery makes food preparation and high-use functions both easy and tidy, leaving an uncluttered and beautiful space to take centre stage for cooking, serving and entertaining.   

Note the drop in levels with this island bench – creating a unique space for additional activity.

Our project extended throughout this exquisite home to include bathroom vanities, laundry, a hide-away study nook, a built-in bookshelf and more, all which continue the hues and style of the kitchen.
