For the full kitchen design overview:

Surrounded by a subtropical ancient rainforest, this intriguing home was designed by Kim Duffin of Sublime Architectural Interiors. One of the main design objectives for this project was that it was to blend with the beautiful landscape that it was located in.

The kitchen needed to reflect the style and mood of what was created externally, while capturing the view of the bush and valley below. The owners wanted a space that would be central to family life and entertaining, so the design had to be innovative and sophisticated.

One of the kitchen’s key features is the use of Staron® Solid Surfaces. This durable product has been used vertically and horizontally on the island benchtops, cabinet doors, drawer fronts and the outdoor bar table.

Staron® in Sleek Silver was chosen for all vertical surfaces to meet the clients’ brief of an achromatic colour palette. Staron in Sanded Dover has been used for the island benchtop that features a flowing drop down waterfall edge and outdoor table.

Acrylic Couture® which is a metal material interlaced and woven, then embedded in acrylic — has been clad to the island front as a feature. The effect created by this unique material brings a whole new meaning to three-dimensional.

Origami-inspired pendants in pewter were used as a feature to draw the eye up, highlighting the detail on the timber ceilings. LED strip lights were used on the edge of the island as mood lighting, illuminating the Acrylic Couture® paneling and creating the illusion that the material inside is dancing. Picture windows were positioned on the splashback wall and in the pantry to keep the clients connected to the stunning flora and fauna exhibited outside.

The rosewood sliding doors complement the other natural elements in this space, providing warmth and an even greater connection to nature. The adjacent Staron® benchtop was designed and manufactured to finish at the same height as the external table.

The end result is a captivating kitchen design is where modern technology meets the beauty of nature, with raw materials moulded to create contemporary, clean lines that still exude depth and warmth.
