A key consideration in designing a space that effortlessly transitions from indoor to outdoor was pivotal. Laminex’s ‘Classic Oak’ compact laminate was chosen to harmonise with the interior flooring and design elements of the inside kitchen, extending this aesthetic continuity to the outdoor space. This choice not only ensures a seamless visual flow but also contributes to the natural ambiance, which selection of light oak complements the surrounding white elements.
Euro Alfresco undertook this project with meticulous planning, prioritising the integration of high-quality fixtures and fittings capable of withstanding the unpredictable outdoor climate. Simultaneously, Studio Lux Interiors’ preferences were accommodated throughout every stage of the design process, ensuring the kitchen aligned seamlessly with Head Designer Annebel’s requirements, colour palette, and, most importantly, her distinctive style.
The focal point when entering the Alfresco space is the 4 Burner Built-In BBQ and Hood from Euro Alfresco. This 4-gas burner unit, perfectly tailored for residential outdoor kitchens was an ideal selection for the Adelaide-based project. While its presence may not immediately catch the eye, a gentle press on the oak laminate panels below the cooker unveils concealed cabinet space housing a convenient Pull-Out bin. The seamless access is facilitated by Hettich’s push-to-open push-rod mechanism and soft-closing hinges, ensuring the secure opening and closing of the cabinetry doors. This discreet design choice eliminates the need for handles, resulting in a cleaner, more minimalist appearance that integrates with the Alfresco environment while also mitigating the risk of erosion.
The Hettich Bin.it Duo II Pull-Out bins contribute to the kitchen’s discreetness by concealing various waste items behind closed cabinetry door. The bins can be effortlessly pulled out to full extension whenever needed, showcasing their functionality and versatility. The inclusion of the bin is a perfect fit for Studio Lux Interiors’ Dream Alfresco Kitchen, especially as it is part of Hettich’s Alfresco Kitchen Collection, one of many products specifically recommended for outdoor use.
Naturally, a complete kitchen space includes essential elements like the sink and a beverage cooler. Positioned on the left, the beverage cooler serves as a dedicated storage unit for cooling beer, wine, and other beverages, creating an ideal pairing with the BBQ cooking experience. Moreover, the space extends with the inclusion of the swimming pool and the expanses of lush grass beyond the Alfresco space which is why it can rightfully be deemed an Outdoor Oasis by and for Studio Lux Interiors.
