PDL Iconic’s stylish design really comes to the fore in the distinctive kitchen, which sits at the heart of the Pukekohe home. Leonie, who works at Cube Dentro designed the kitchen herself and even went on to win Highly Commended at the 2020 TIDA Awards.
The kitchen is designed to be used while enjoying the panoramic views, with the sink and cooking areas both incorporated into the geometrically styled island. A practical scullery space is tucked behind.
The dark colour palette with brass accents complements the black cedar and joinery of the exterior, with cedar used again in the range block above the island, in a window seat, and in a nearby feature wall.
Leonie Hamill says the sleek angular lines and darker finish of Iconic Styl in Silver Shadow made it easy to incorporate switches and power points without detracting from the impact of the dark cabinetry. “The finish on the Iconic Styl plates was in keeping with the materials we used for the kitchen and they have a beautiful, minimalistic look,” she says.
“For example, in the scullery the hexagonal tiles are almost three dimensional, so it was about getting the power points sitting nice and flat so they look good in the design.”
Life is made even easier with subtle light behind switches indicating when they’re in use, and stylised pictographs helping with easy reference for different appliances.
