Modest kitchen in Mafi oak with bronze splashback
It’s a common enough design brief – create a spacious kitchen within a tight space. A clever design will address this need from every angle.
Architects Rob Nerlich and Kate McMahon, of McMahon and Nerlich, took just such an approach for this 4m-wide entertainer’s kitchen.
The kitchen defies convention in a tiny space by stepping in from both edges, creating an easy flow around the compact island, says Nerlich.
“We turned the refrigerator by 90 degrees to downplay its presence and the feature Mafi oak ceiling flows down to hide the fridge, becomes cabinet doors, and fronts the rangehood,” he says.
McMahon says they added a pantry to the rear, screened in part by a bronze splashback.
