Chaddesley Avenue

Winner Most Innovative Kitchen Design

Designer: Luke Fry Pty Ltd
Builder: Oxley Constructions Pty Ltd
Photographer: Derek Swalwell
Location: St Kilda East, VIC

Innovative by way of a non‐cluttered kitchen. The design intent clearly had an objective: a minimalist finish. The result is innovative by way of its appearance. The use of fine grain timber joinery finish is a standout. The use of brass fixtures, the brass tapware against natural stone granite bench with an integrated under bench sink are also standouts. The simple horizontal mini tile splashback in stack bond brick pattern and the retro joinery façade cover to the overhead rangehood exhaust above the cook top! Innovation is not always seen; however more so what does not exist to the human eye. The finish of the walls also has a defined venetian stucco affect, an appearance with a minimal feature with the skirting boards designed to have a seamless finish.
