The supreme winner of the 2015 NZ House & Garden Interior of the Year awards is a beautiful Auckland kitchen that features painted pressed tin panels, including on the sliding panels that hide the hardworking laundry and larder areas.
WHAT THE JUDGES SAID: “Every detail in this kitchen and laundry area – from the lights, to the cornices to the cupboards – has been carefully considered. We loved the discrete LED lights and the birdcage pendant lights; the custom designed cornices, and the cunning sliding doors. The colour works, the layers of texture are magnificent. A truly elegant space.”
HIGHLY COMMENDED HELEN WILCOCK OF DESIGN.SPEC AND ANITA MAES OF BELLA CASSITA: The challenge was to create a kitchen that works for a family of today, yet still stays true to the design of this heritage Auckland home. The hob splashback is a standout feature, combining 27 different tile patterns in colours of black, white and grey.
