2015 Auckland Island Life

Due to the unusual space layout, the brief was to connect the two separate area’s into a functional kitchen and scullery. The scullery is a full working kitchen which houses the butlers sink, ovens, cook top and pantry storage. The island acts as a social hub and prep area for guest entertainment.

The existing casual dining area was far too small and so the kitchen table has now been merged into the large center island for casual dining and socializing.

This island design works well with the client’s everyday busy life and in-fact they now spend most of their time in the kitchen space.

The style of the social island reflects the classical arts and crafts house with antiqued oak cabinetry fronts. The island stands more as a piece of furniture with this antiqued detailing. The simple, white but classical scullery behind sits slightly understated in the background.
