Everyone dreams of creating an architectural statement that resonates with individual style and has the cultural presence of a cathedral, a timeless monument of who we are and an outward expression of how we react to the World around us.
It is therefore fitting that this building, which has been deliberated and planed for years, a dream which has become a physical reality, and is subjectively believed to be the “eighth wonder of the world” should be given a heart that pulsates to the rhythm of your needs.
But has this architectural marvel been created to frame the centre piece of your home? Is the architecture just an afterthought, built upon and embedded within the bigger picture, the one thing you have really wanted to become a reality....your dream kitchen?!
Here we see the kitchen becoming an island and the lines between kitchen and architecture becoming blurred. Each element needs the other and the relationship is designed to be mutually complementary!
There is also an interesting contradiction here whereby the architecture is conceived from wood, a naturally sympathetic material! The kitchen on the other hand is constructed from the more industrially dominant materials of steel and concrete! Usually this relationship would be the other way around! Is this a visual and physical euphemism for the kitchen now wearing the trousers in this particular relationship?!
