Our client owned a holiday home on the waterfront at Sydney’s Northern Beaches for over 25 years. The plan was to knock down the current old home and build a new contemporary house, with plenty of room for entertaining and allowing the glorious outlook to it’s full advantage. Impala was commissioned to do whole house joinery, including the kitchen, bathroom vanities, all wardrobes, side buffet units, laundry, hallway storage and entertainment unit.
The client requested neutral hues but not white, something contemporary and sleek. The kitchen features a gorgeous yet practical island unit with storage at either end. The doors are custom colour polyurethane with finger pulls. The kitchen looks to be floating with mirrored kick boards. Both ends of the island unit are matching in size and proportion. One end houses a bar fridge where the dining table is situated, the other a large bank of drawers. There are two pantries on either side of the ice-maker fridge. A walk in pantry to store bulky items can be accessed to the right and a pull-out pantry to the left. Lighting was critical for task and ambience. Impala installed LED downlights to the underside of the island unit and underneath the overhead cabinets.
