The ambition was to give a contemporary make-over to a modernist home set on a pan-handle. One of the key objectives was soften the interior pallete, whilst maintaining the modernist aesthetic.
The kitchen space offered the greatest challenge and opportunity given its awkward relationship to the living spaces, as well as its ‘galley’ configuration. This was solved through opening the kitchen space to create a singular generous room, including a communal island, wine room, and additional windows to improve light.
The kitchen space is connected to the patio with a bar counter, which opens with a large scale bi-fold window. This is intended to create a wider social dynamic to the space, making the kitchen space the social hub of the home.
