Lustrous Lines

On approaching this kitchen, the long granite bench with half waterfall front and ends is a feature you can’t help but notice.

This look is achieved by careful attention-to-detail to match the pattern of the black and white marbled granite on the corners. The end result is striking and oozes luxury.

The rest of the kitchen provides a subtle backdrop to the bench, allowing it to be the star of the show. This look is achieved by flush handle-less push-to-open American Oak Veneer cabinets in a combination of Natural and Black stained finishes.

The extended panel light above the benchtop is barely noticeable along the horizontal lines of this kitchen. It complements the overall feeling of calm and simplicity, which understates its many hidden features. The wine fridge with its timber shelving further ties in the black/timber relationship.

Tucked under the window at the end of the kitchen is a subtle bar leaner. When dining outdoors, opening the window connects the two spaces.
