Smith & Smith Kitchens Project 5

The owners of this property worked with Rob Barclay over a period of time to bring their dreams to fruition. The focal points of the kitchen are the imposing chimney mantle and the elegant island bench. The 2.8m-high cabinets accentuate the chimney’s powerful, substantial presence while the 60mm island bench is hand-edged from variegated beige marble.

The cabinetry pays homage to those that can be found in the chateaus of France’s Loire Valley. Enhanced by the kitchen’s soft beige walls and marble floors, the cabinetry is complemented with fluted columns, fluted moulding, and decorative kickboards.

Five separate areas were designed to care for food preparation and presentation with accompanying storage. This allows whoever is cooking the ability to deliver meals while guests are seated in the kitchen at the island bench.

Constructed from solid American oak, all doors and panels in the 7.5m x 4.5m kitchen were hand-painted and feature bolection moulding. The whole kitchen was then hand-waxed, and all grooves were shadowed to suggest an aged appearance.
