Designed by Paul Clarke of Auckland-based Studio2 Architects, this two-level beach house on the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand, aesthetically reflects its coastal environment. It subtly builds on the experience of being on the seashore with a series of indoor and outdoor spaces that flow into each other and can be used in different ways.
The crisp tonal palette of this kitchen is a signature of interior designer Carole Whiting, who co-ordinated the design with the monochromatic scheme of the wider renovation project - her own warehouse conversion, located in close proximity to the South Melbourne CBD, Australia.
John Irving, the architect behind this dramatic villa conversion, describes it as "a house with two halves". The traditional Victorian home is located on a street of well-preserved turn-of-the-century architecture. At the end of the villa's hallway, there is now a set of steps descending to the modern pavilion containing the living area and kitchen.
We know that renovating a kitchen or designing one from scratch can be daunting, this practical design guide will help you take your first step towards making your dream kitchen a reality.
