Darren James – Finalist for ‘Queensland Large Kitchen Design of the Year’ – KBDI Awards 2011
Check out this stunning project that has made the finals at this years KBDi Awards….
Here is a short description of the project….
The best of East meets West, this design demonstrates the successful combination of minimalist principles seen in traditional Japanese design with the contemporary Australian lifestyle of a typical modern Australian family. The result is simple clean lines paired with warm earthy tones; rich wood finishes married to organic elements and cabinetry artfully arranged to create a balanced, harmonious and functional kitchen highly sought after by the client.
Re-building a house brings many benefits including the opportunity to plan a kitchen to meet every requirement. Presented with a large blank canvas the owners requested that I design a kitchen that “made a statement about who they are”. For this young family of four this meant creating a simplicitic, relaxing and functional kitchen environment that paid respect to their Japanese heritage and echoed their love for contemporary Japanese design.
