The clients, a brother and sister who inherited terrace house from their parents, engaged Mint Kitchen Group, which has been designing award-winning kitchens in Melbourne for more than 30 years.
The original kitchen was little to speak of: A small closed-off room with an upright electric cooker, sink and small round table, plus a separate room with a tiny, shallow pantry. The clients’ brief asked for a practical kitchen with bench space, storage and a breakfast bar for morning coffee and casual drinks and meals with friends. It also needed to be in keeping with the classic style of the Victorian terrace. “We wanted to open up the space to make it an inviting place to sit, chat and enjoy a coffee; suitable for having friends over,” says Frank Iaria, design director of Mint Kitchens.
