Simplicity of line, form, colour and shape were the key elements of this sleek galley-style kitchen. Designed by Cauley Hurrell of Intrigue Kitchen Design, the project won the NKBA award for Best Kitchen under $12,000.

The judges said Hurrell demonstrated well how this type of kitchen can be achieved, by working with the client to produce custom fixtures and using the open-plan living space to advantage.

Hurrell says the pale tone of the maple woodgrain cabinetry helps to warm the kitchen visually and contrasts the crisp look of the frosted-glass splashback and cool fluorescent lighting.

"The timber also helps blend the indoors with the outdoors and is a complement to the polished concrete benchtops and floor," she says. "The structured forms that enclose the cabinetry add to the balance and harmony of the space."

The long island with twin sinks is positioned to maximise a good view.
