Sorrento House 1

Winner Most Innovative Kitchen Design

Designer: Vibe Design Group Pty Ltd
Builder: Icon Synergy Pty Ltd
Photographer: We Shoot Buildings + Luke Boyle, Get Flushed Photography + Vibe Design
Location: Sorrento, VIC

A sleek monolithic kitchen with a restrained palette of relaxed materials and strong rectangular forms. The bold black tapware, wine rack and window frame give definition to the working wall where the white cupboards almost float from the concrete wall. The application of drawers provides practical and easy-to-access storage. There are no interruptions to the island bench providing an expansive area to prepare and serve. Its design is simple yet bold, with a sleek rectangular block of timber cabinetry supporting a substantial concrete bench top and water fall end. Integrated appliances and a butler’s pantry maintain the clean structure and the mess, away from view. A kitchen that will be enjoyed each day, and wonderful for serving and entertaining guests in this modern beach house.
