Located within the Harry Seidler designed Horizon Apartment tower in Darlinghurst, Sydney, this is a project for repeat clients (and friends) with a brief to renovate the original 17 year old kitchen and laundry of a 2 bedroom apartment.

Using a restrained white palette of white polyurethane finished joinery, storage is maximised while maintaining an open connection with the living area. A continuous white Corian benchtop wraps around the kitchen, incorporating a special sitting area facing the northern harbour view and a sculptured shelf composition on the living room side to assist in concealing the wash-up area.

Custom-made white powdercoated aluminium grilles and randomly placed stainless steel door and drawer handles complete the composition.

A glass splashback was selected for ease of cleaning, but also for its ability to reflect the view from outside.

This one has been back-painted with 10 coloured stripes adding an artistic highlight to the overall white space.

And a splash of colour from the owners is deliberately hidden behind the coffee machine.
