Venendo Insieme

Winner Most Innovative Kitchen Design

Designer: Design Unity Pty Ltd Builder: T & J Designer Builders
Photographer: Matthew Mallett Photography Location: Berwick, VIC

The cleverly designed kitchen of Venendo Insieme is an example of a utility area being conceived as a piece of furniture. The minimalist white island bench features a mirror treatment to create a floating effect that visually extends the dining area. The cabinetry surrounding the preparation bench is thoughtfully detailed to frame the appliances. Within the two exposed appliances sits a hamper door that conceals the preparation bench alcove. Through skillful space-planning measures such as hiding refrigeration in the butler’s pantry, the designers have been able to achieve an uncluttered kitchen that is part of the family area. The absence of handles and striking lights makes this kitchen sleek and stylish.
