Fitzroy North Townhouse by Lisa Breeze
Melbourne architect Lisa Breeze introduced cool blue-grey tones throughout the central kitchen in a 1970s townhouse in Fitzroy North. Describing the palette as ‘simple, yet hardy’, Lisa selected livid blue joinery, timber handles and a Superwhite quartzite benchtop; all a contemporary nod to the 70s. “For a small home, the space ended up as a very generous kitchen, with all of the lovely wide bench space and appliances a comfortable distance from each other,” Lisa says. The stainless steel Bosch Series 8 oven is a natural fit in the kitchen, working with the steel tapware and kitchen cabinets’ grey undertones. “If there is only space for one oven, it has to be a great oven,” Lisa says. “The Bosch appliances work beautifully and look sharp without compromising space.”
Located in the emerging Schillerkiez district in Berlin, this two-bedroom loft apartment explores a dark and moody palette in the kitchen, juxtaposed by white lacquered oak flooring. It features the FOLD kitchen designed by Reform in collaboration with Berlin-based architect Sigurd Larsen. Deep navy brushed aluminium cabinetry is met with a stainless steel benchtop, cultivating a streamlined cooking area that makes the most of the limited space. The sleek, glossy-black finish of the Bosch Series 8, built-in oven offers subtle, yet striking contrast to the matte navy blue cabinetry. For easy entertaining, the oven features pyrolytic self-cleaning, baking on all four levels and SoftClose doors.
