The Southey Street residence has won the Best Kitchen Design award, because its kitchen design clearly demonstrates that “big is not necessarily better”. Concealed kitchen utilities allow for simple lineal joinery which is functional and beautiful. The overhead cupboards float seamlessly over the marble splashback, due to the use of LED strip lighting.

The use of a highly patterned marble as a splashback is a refreshing departure from popular materials and provides a strong point of interest. Purposeful attention enhances the dramatic grain of the marble.

Subtle details such as recessed finger pulls, white Corian benchtop and integrated whitegoods assist in the balanced design.

Restrained finishes and lighting ensure that the space remains a feature whilst not overwhelming the associated living/dining area. The space under the staircase has also been utilised effectively, housing a concealed laundry.
