Connection is key in this modern kitchen in Remuera, designed by Shane George. See how they achieved this sleek, clean look below
Designed to cater for a busy family, a beautifully proportioned modern kitchen played a pivotal role in the major renovation of this large bungalow in the Auckland suburb of Remuera.
The owners’ brief was for a large kitchen with an enhanced connection to the outdoor living space, an island with seating for at least four, and a clean but not-too-clinical aesthetic.
A wall-to-wall picture window was inserted at the far end of the room to not only let in more light but also to provide a glimpse out to the classic scoria boundary wall and small garden.
The colour and material palettes were kept simple. Clean white cabinetry sits next to rich, chocolate-stained American oak, with a flash of metallic bronze paintwork on the overhead cabinetry above the wide picture window.
The two different benchtop materials reflect their functions – hardwearing stainless steel along the worktop, and a softer Caesarstone engineered stone with subtle marble veining on the island, where the family gathers for breakfast.
