Our designers prepared a range of options to suit the various spaces in this elegant house with the client opting for a solution which placed the large island bench central to the main the living space. This brought with it a few challenges including the incorporation of obtrusive structural elements. Through the generous arrangement of the kitchen components the areas in front of and behind the kitchen become two distinct yet unified spaces allowing for both formal and informal dining experiences.
In response to the clients brief for a modern classic, Pepper Design produced a Kitchen which uses materials in a more organic way and brings a softer aesthetic to the space that has become the heart of the home. Inspired by the clients’ exquisite period furniture, the Kitchen brings a contemporary design with a classical twist into this Toorak kitchen.
With the tall cabinetry housing a Gaggenau Oven, Combi Stream Oven, Coffee Centre and warming drawers we were able create a focused cooking area adjacent to the cooktop. We positioned the Island bench to incorporate difficult structural elements which maximise efficiency and is the key feature of the new dining area. Complementing the magnificent wide timber floorboards, our 40mm thick Dekton, Keranium worktop blends with the sink and ads drama to the space.
The cooktop bench to the rear and splashback are also Dekton Keranium, unifying the work zones. We used a Neff Induction Cooktop and a Sirius Rangehood which integrate seamlessly into the Poggenpohl cabinetry. This stunning but quite understated Poggenpohl kitchen is in ‘Sand’ matt lacquer finish with aluminium block handles.
With a clever re-arrangement of the powder room and laundry we were able to create a full Butler’s Pantry with Gaggenau Variocool Fridge, Freezer and second sink.
