RELAXED ENTERTAINING

Brief:
A coastal style kitchen that opens onto the entertaining deck, capturing the ocean view and sea breeze. Enhance a dining area flowing from the kitchen.

Response:
The clients are passionate cooks requiring plenty of good storage, prep areas and the inclusion of an integrated fridge. They also wanted to display some decorative items collected on their travels, hence the addition of glass doors to the top of the wall units. We introduced a café-style window opening onto the entertaining deck where we had a narrow cabinet for extra storage which also created a usable bench-top for serving food to the outdoor area.

The floor required some modifications to create a single level and we were able to source compatible timber to work in with their existing. In the dining area we created banquette style seating with storage below to maximise the space. We coordinated the fabrics in tones of navy and white. The end result has brought the areas together well to enhance the coastal position of the house and create social areas to share with family and friends.
