The kitchen and adjacent bar was created for clients who like to entertain and wanted a space to blend into the home’s contemporary architecture.

They asked for a visual statement which used modern materials, incorporated sharp lines and played on bold, assymetrical forms in a while palette.

Corian and angles were introduced into the design of the bar to meld the two areas for impact.

Timber flooring was used as a contrast to the monochrome kitchen and bar, reflecting the rural and pool outlook.
