Understated tones and luxury materials were used to create an exceptional kitchen and family room at the heart of this Richmond home. Respecting the heritage of the property. Arch KBB used its Handless Shaker kitchen which was painted in soft dove grey. A symmetrical unit was designed to provide the majority of kitchen storage with the oven and hob taking center stage, framed by a Quartz splashback. An additional run of units which began in the kitchen and housed the American-style fridge freezer and two large pantry cupboards, continued through to the family room as a low-level multi-media and television unit. Standing at the centre of the kitchen, below a vast lightwell, a freestanding island was seamlessly wrapped in polished concrete, providing a place for food preparation and entertaining. The whole scheme is softened by large Dinessen-style floorboards and a recessed lighting system.
