Toorak Kitchen & Bathroom
June 1, 2016
The project being set in a 1960s apartment building, I was very conscious of creating a kitchen and bathroom design sympathetic to the original architecture while giving it relevance in today’s market. To obtain the most efficient use of space, walls were knocked out and new ones built to create a galley kitchen and a bigger bathroom which included a European laundry. I kept the lines squared, from the marble bench top detailing to the shaker cabinetry adorned with hardware reflecting the ‘60s era. I always like to splash out on the tapware as I love the impact it makes, so in both rooms I used Nicolazzi designs. In the bathroom, I reintroduced the green bath from the original fitout enhancing the existing ‘60s characteristics. Presence of the colour white allowed the spaces to look bigger and brighter while the marble bench tops brought a level of sophistication mirroring the feel of the other rooms in the apartment.
