Marble, wood, concrete and stainless steel combine to give this kitchen a powerful presence
The owners fell in love with the +Artesio concept from Poggenpohl, so it was up to Pepper Design to blend it into a minimalist space, says architect David Kane.
“A classic white finish was selected for the doors to frame the hero element which is the dark wood cladding and stainless steel panels to the rear wall,” says Kane. “The steel panels house the tap, power points and switches so the benchtop is clutter free.”
Despite the clean, sculptural aesthetic, attention to fine detail on the design was all-important. For example, the corner bench seat and table match the finish of the kitchen. Even the stitching on the leather seats was measured to run in 130mm increments to match the measurements of the panelled wall.
“We designed the pantry/appliance area with clear, light shelves to maximise the feeling of spaciousness – these were fitted to the raw concrete walls.”
The marble wrapping the island was selected by the homeowners and this organic-look material is an important part of the material composition and impact of the kitchen.
