Auckland architectural team Studio106 sent me this sharp kitchen and bathroom re-design they recently completed on a Freeman's Bay house.
They completely re-designed the kitchen so it flows seamlessly from dining area at one end, and on the other end, out onto the balcony through a new set of french doors. And I spy with my little eye a set of drawers on castors with a timber workbench top, that roll out to offer extra prep and plating space. Clever. The new kitchen style could be described as Brutalist-inspired - it's undoubtedly contemporary, but has a very cool industrial rawness and functionality.
In the bathroom, they describe the aesthetic as 1960's townhouse-meets-70's-alpine hut. I love how that huge shower window brings the treetops in, but is completely private.
