A modern addition to an older house brings the opportunity to plan a new kitchen without having to work around existing elements. This was the scenario when architect Nick Murray designed this multifaceted kitchen – part of a major rear-of-house extension. This aspect of the renovation had to meet several needs. The owners had requested an entertainer’s kitchen to front onto the living spaces, and a separate semi-professional chef’s kitchen away from the public eye. A walk-in pantry and an outdoor kitchen in the same area were also required, says Murray.

Top, above and left: A working chef’s kitchen behind the scenes is all in stainless steel with matching appliances. There is a sightline from the pantry through the chef’s kitchen to an outdoor kitchen beyond. search | save | share at 21
