Woolwich, NSW, kitchen

Part of a full renovation of a five-bedroom home, this kitchen posed a special challenge. The owners wished to stay put throughout the home’s refurbishment, so Waller had to ensure a working kitchen from go to whoa. Also on the clients’ wish list was a larger butler’s pantry, more storage and to create visual continuity from the kitchen to the open-plan family room, included in the upgrade. Designed as a standalone kitchen, Waller completed the butler’s pantry first. Then turning to the main kitchen, he removed a wall between that and the formal dining to create a servery, which also opened up views to Sydney Harbour. White joinery in Tasmanian oak echoes the architraves throughout the open plan, while the island was painted a delicate eau de Nil blue, also used in the office niche, an ingenious repurposing of a stereo cupboard. Aged-brass drawer pulls and metal-mesh door fronts create visual links to fittings throughout the house.


Built interiors: kitchen and butler’s pantry. Removal of structural walls. Bespoke joinery, lighting planning, materials and finishes specification. Interior decoration: furniture, custom wallpaper and decorative works.
