View From The Top
This new home, with its pre-cast concrete walls and ceilings and expansive views, is an architectural master piece in South Australia. The kitchen, which is part of an expansive family room, is a breathtaking part of the creation.
The placement of appliances – which included a wok burner- were important, and a longer-than-usual 4.1m Glacier White Corian® island bench was given an interesting finish by using varying thicknesses of Corian® for the top as well as sharknose detailing.
The Adelaide vista was to be the main focus of the space, but the owners then wanted visitors to turn around and see a kitchen to knock them off their feet. The theme of timber, concrete and glass, which were used to create a warm room, but also one that had a retro hint about it.
The retro-modern look also comes across via the timber flooring, and extending this outside draws the eye to the view. Timber cladding, which wraps around the entire kitchen wall and a New York marble splashback comprising two book-matched slabs, are other standout features.
The design details and the quality craftsmanship make this a very memorable kitchen.
