St Marys Bay kitchen evokes the seventies
The owners of this modernist home were determined to preserve its architectural authenticity, when planning a comprehensive renovation. This extended to the new kitchen, which has been designed by Wayne Church to evoke the era, complete with square tile splash-backs and bench-tops edged in bull-nosed solid oak.
Of course, under the skin are all the conveniences of a 21st century kitchen - Blum servo-assisted touch-to-open drawers, Fisher and Paykel appliances, and hard-wearing polyurethane lacquered surfaces. The starkness of the minimalist white-on-white look is softened and warmed by the generous use of oak veneer panels and flooring.
This is a kitchen that has been designed specifically to fit with the architectural style of the home, and the fact that it looks so natural in the space is testament to this approach.
