There is absolutely no doubting the fact that homeowners are increasingly becoming interested in making the view outside an integral, and at times pivotal, part of their home’s design.
Located in the exclusive neighborhood of Dover Heights in Sydney and overlooking the surfing paradise that is Bondi Beach, this fabulous kitchen is all about integrating smart space-saving solutions with sleek, contemporary design that is simply exquisite. Serving the needs of a modern family comprised of two adults and two teenage girls, the elegant space crafted by Minosa Design acts as the heart of a unique home that features two levels above ground and four floors below!
The luxury home sits on the cliff face with levels above ground and four levels down and it’s a showstopper. It embraces its surroundings and captures the stunning views in their entirety.
The contemporary Sydney property belongs to two self-employed adults with two girls heading into their teenage years. The home had to cater to international guests and long close family visits. Having worked with the clients on previous successful projects, the designer was well aware that this kitchen was to be the nucleus in which all-home life was based and run.
It had to be well designed and handle the demands that were going to be thrown its way. Furthermore it had to sit within the hardcore architecture created and ooze style and sophistication to all that entered the front door of this exquisite home.
While the design of the kitchen looks deceptively simple on the outside, there were many design challenges that were overcome using clever additions and several concealed units. For starters, the homeowners wanted to ensure that the 270-degree view of the beach from the kitchen was left undisturbed. To accommodate this, large floor-to-ceiling glass walls were used, while the air conditioning units were carefully hidden away in a credenza to cater to the cooling needs. An open floor plan was adopted to further ensure that the view outside became an integral part of the interior.
“This home is a traffic stopper! The clients are thrilled to pieces with the end result and enjoy the functional kitchen as it plays its role as the hub of the home with poise and elegance daily,” adds the designer.
