Jo's favourite kitchens 2013 - part 1


A light filled galley kitchen

I love this light filled kitchen that provides the link between the old and new in this inner-city Sydney terrace house. Reclaimed bricks and rustic timber shelf balance the sleek modern lines and smooth stone benchtop of the galley kitchen. Light tumbles in from the skylight while the transition from traditional dining room to the modern alteration is made via worn sandstone steps. Finally the space reaches a small but stylish courtyard. Such a beautiful space for cooking. By Paddington based design firm Alexander & CO.


Mews 04

Like a theatre set of brilliant white, this modern extension to a double fronted mews house in Hyde Park, London allows the owners' pieces to take centre stage. Art Deco meets decadence meets minalism with neoclassical whimsy and luxury. Sinuous and sensual and at times stark. Part folly, part living space, part sculpture. I have a vision of an operatic fat lady in vintage Paco Rabanne and house slippers gliding across a minimalist cube towards a Fornasetti milking stool while warbling Wagnerian lieder and sipping Nespresso. And I mean that is the best possible way! Love it. By Andy Martin Architects.

The cook's kitchen

I had to revisit the MAKE architecture portfolio. There was a kitchen renovation I had to share. The kitchen/dining area of this art deco home was upgraded so that the owners could run a cooking school. Large enough to allow for classes, intimate enough for day to day living. I love the interplay of the black with the timber and the gleam of metallic highlights, the art deco style glass and steel doors and the rustic dining table. I would love to cook here. More importantly I would love to share my food with family and friends here.
