With a U-shape design for optimum functionality, the kitchen more than delivers.
It sports a gourmet-grade installation of 11 high-end appliances – including a six-burner-and-grill Thermador Professional range top, two Thermador ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Miele dishwashers, a Panasonic microwave, two Sub-Zero freezer drawers, two Sub-Zero produce drawers, and a commercial-grade high-efficiency stove hood – to easily cater to the full spectrum of culinary options from spontaneous meals to extravagant business dinners. Chefs and caterers can conjure up multi-course menus and guests can be served in the adjoining formal dining room accessed through a discreet pocket door to ensure maximum effect with the minimum amount of disturbance.
And the aesthetic of the kitchen is an art form in itself – an abundance of white Shaker-style cabinetry and ceiling-height glass-fronted display shelving custom built locally contrasts with granite countertops and matching backsplash rich with seams of semi-precious lapis lazuli producing its distinctive blue hue.
A contoured piece of stainless steel was custom designed and fitted above the gas range to achieve a sweeping convex dimension in direct contrast to the concavity of the ventilation hood, itself decked out with matching stainless-steel trim.
A dazzling Bocci light fixture acts as a centrepiece above the island surrounded by a rectangular teak veneer, an accent which is repeated in the family room as a bespoke feature wall. A custom tempered glass counter creates an island breakfast bar, perfect for a two-person lazy Sunday brunch.
