This project was an extension to an old workers cottage built in the 1920s. The brief was to create a lower level connected to the garden, which created a mezzanine floor for a new kitchen and dining area that held a higher view over the surrounding suburb. We took cues from the era of the house to create a deco inspired kitchen that felt like it was at the prow of a boat.
Corian® was chosen for its innate ease of maintenance, but also as it was extremely thin. As the kitchen was located on a mezzanine, the view of the kitchen was important from below and we felt a thin format benchtop would be a refined minimalist aesthetic that was not overpowering from the living room vantage point.
The rounded kitchen island benchtop was supported by a steel frame that created a black edge around its thin section, allowing us to lean in to the feeling of a fine Deco design.
“We chose Corian® because of its hardiness and thinness and was not let down by the final outcome. The client loves the easy maintenance of the benchtops.” said Brooke Aitken.
