This alpine kitchen in Lake Hayes is a fusion of oriental and commercial chic, with clean, straight lines, natural materials and earthy tones. 


The kitchen features two islands. At one end of the chef’s island is a cantilevered teppanyaki grill mounted in Ceasarstone. 


On the pastry island, Ceasarstone along with marble has been used. A self-contained coffee making area affording sweeping views of the Remarkables is a special space within the home. 


Many of the functional elements are hidden behind six-coat Ameron lacquered soft close doors and panels, however a ‘feature wall’ with a 2.25m tall by 3.25m long, six door glass fronted cabinet is on display. 


Traditional Japanese sliding screens separate the kitchen from an informal dining and lounge area.


The kitchen space was designed by Stefan Sonntag of Masterwood Joinery and won the Supreme Kitchen Design award at the 2019 NKBA Excellence in Design Awards.
