Beautiful Obstacle!

There is a delicate contradiction occurring here.  At first glance we see a kitchen which has broken free from its traditional architectural constraints, a brilliant example of how kitchen design has become a refined art form.  This design mixes smooth finishes and stylish colours with trendy asymmetrical lines and also provides us with a rugged display of traditional carpentry.
The breakfast bar is deep and chunky and its simple construction celebrates a legacy of traditional cabinet making.   This element provides an edgy and masculine side to the design while also giving the cook loads of space for preparation.
It is important when integrating a divisional feature like this that the functional planning is perfectly correct and tailored to the clients individual requirements as there is potential that it may become a beautiful obstacle!

  1. Beautiful. I'm especially fond of how the sliding wooden/veneer doors reveal deep, intense pink color in a kitchen with an otherwise neutral palette.

    It's that little surprise that makes good design great design.
