Martha Cove – DKO Architecture

The epicurean kitchen of the Mt Martha waterfront residence fuses clean geometric lines and restrained materiality to create a family space that’s effortless yet exciting. Reflecting the palette of the surrounding landscape, the interiors are finished in cool grey limestone, which contrasts with the textured timber joinery. The warm tones provide a soft respite from the predominantly solid forms.

The beautifully striking restraint of the project is clearly visible in the considered selection of appliances. Chosen for the sleek and streamlined appearance, and outstanding functionality, Gaggenau’s high-end products inspire an easy and effortless kitchen experience. Seamlessly blending with the joinery, the flex induction cooktop, canopy extractor rangehood and integrated refrigerator with freezer, complement the muted palette of natural materials in a discreet and contemporary way, while the wall oven and combi-microwave oven are tucked away to the side of the kitchen in the butler’s pantry.

The carefully curated combination of a toned down, natural colour palette, a limited selection of robust materials, diligent detailing, craftsmanship and effortless functionality result in a modern interior that is refined, authentic, uncomplicated and incredibly easy to use.
