Hawthorn East House by Adrian Amore Architects

Built for a couple in their 70s, this contemporary Melbourne home focuses on functionality and practicality – now and well into the future – leading Adrian Amore Architects to specify Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances in the kitchen. “The kitchen needed to incorporate the latest in technology while having a warm, timeless appeal,” principal architect Adrian Amore reflects. “It was important that all the appliances were user-friendly, especially for ‘non-tech-minded’ people, functioning with the highest level of precision.”

Concrete Curtain by FGR Architects

The owners of this Melbourne home desired a truly unique space that reflected their distinctive tastes, leading them to engage FGR Architects to design the fit-out, including a kitchen that served as the “beating heart of family life”. “In this captivating kitchen, characterised by striking Aquarzo Quartzite, the Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances command equal attention,” principal architect Feras Raffoul says. “Their sleek and sophisticated appearance complements the kitchen’s refined aesthetic and enhances its visual appeal.”

"Through the discerning lens of the Kitchen Design Contest, we've unearthed three remarkable Australian projects that epitomise the pinnacle of kitchen design innovation. These projects not only showcase Australia's remarkable talent but also reaffirm Sub-Zero Wolf's commitment to elevating culinary spaces worldwide."
