This luxury kitchen, designed by Claudia DeYulia from Sykora Kitchens, was inspired by the streamlined elegance of modern European designs. The highly functional space features the latest energy-saving appliances, including a Sub-Zero integrated fridge/ freezer and a Zip Hydrotap, which instantly delivers boiling, chilled and sparkling water.
A range of innovative storage solutions were also included in the design, such as the Kesseböhmer pantry pull-outs, which make organisation easy. Two butler’s pantries with high-quality HAWA bi-fold pocket doors were installed to hide smaller appliances and reduce clutter.
To further encourage a streamlined appearance, the island bench features a built-in rangehood. The island comfortably seats up to five people and is fitted with four flush-mounted cooktops from BORA – including two Professional-range cooktops, one wok cooktop and one tepanyaki grill – as well as a stylish BLANCO sink. High-performance appliances from V-ZUG were installed to make entertaining a breeze, including an extra-large dishwasher and a Combi-Steam oven with warming drawers.
A complementary combination of white acrylic finish and ‘Smoked Oak’ timber veneer was selected for the cabinetry, while the 100mm-high kickboards feature stainless steel for a sophisticated final touch. London-made marble tiles were selected for the flooring, while the island bench features complementary calacatta ‘Moonlight’ marble.
