The winner of the TIDA NZ 2017 designer kitchen award
From designer Shane George: This kitchen was designed for a beautiful and authentically styled Italian country villa. The original kitchen lacked the functionality that was now required by the family, and it was starting to show its age. I was asked asked for an aesthetic that was more up-to-date, while still being sympathetic to the house style, with an added wow factor!
There were also specific design challenges to overcome, not least of which were that the walls, floor and ceiling are solid masonry. Nothing could be put into the walls, so new mechanical services had to be integrated into the back of the cabinetry, including future-proofing.
All this was overlaid with a rich palate of materials, fixtures and finishes.
