Vaucluse Home

2015 SubZero Wolf award-winning traditional kitchen that puts the Hamptons in Vaucluse.

Client Brief:

A high quality traditional kitchen that’s practical and functional, and visually gorgeous – that was the brief given by these Vaucluse residents. They wanted a kitchen that was in keeping with the elevated and classic, yet relaxed and beachy ‘Hamptons’ style.

The client was passionate about working with our award winning designer, John Horvath: “We were blown away by the stunning showroom, attention to detail and by John’s innovative and challenging concept”.

Horvath developed and refined the initial concept design alongside the clients, ensuring a finished product that not only met, but exceeded their brief.

Design Features:

Modern luxuries are incorporated into this elegant kitchen, including Blum soft close drawers and hinges, as well as Blum “Orgaline” drawer organisers. Recessed shelves around the mantel are both luxurious and practical.

Proud kickboards, profiled doors, ornate handles and a soft hand paint finish elevate the visual appeal and bring the Hamptons to Sydney’s beachside suburb.

An expansive island brings grandeur and scale to the space and creates an inviting area to gather. It flows seamlessly to the rest of the home tying the kitchen in with the open plan living area.

One of the biggest challenges of this project was to incorporate four distinct zones in the open plan kitchen and living areas. A kitchen, dresser, display storage and window seat now work successfully and seamlessly. The four zones now see the kitchen acting as a central hub and the unifying feature for the various spaces.

The spectacular finished product is a testament to John’s design excellence and wide experience.
