Queenstown Kitchen


KBB Design Finalist

Design Practice:

Cronin Kitchens

Project Title:

Queenstown Kitchen

Project Location:

Otago, New Zealand

Design Practice Location:

Auckland, New Zealand

This classically modern family kitchen sits at the heart of a new holiday home, located at the axis of three wings that form the dining and living spaces. The available space for the kitchen is deceivingly small, and the designer’s goal was to create a kitchen that would appear larger and grander than its footprint appeared.

To achieve the requested seating for five at the island, a cantilevered, L-shaped element was seamlessly integrated into the marble bench top – raised slightly above the rest of the bench top. For continuity, the marble was used in the cooking zone and for the splashback. Two columns of cabinetry containing the pantry and fridge/freezers flank this area. Adjacent to the kitchen is a custom sideboard that contains a drinks station, plus additional storage. Matched in the same black-stained oak cabinetry, this unit has smoked, black-glass doors, which bring an additional dimension to the space.
