Local Character, International Appeal

Creating kindred spirits from contemporary design and Maltese tradition.

The kitchen. It’s the heart of the home – the coming together of people in a space created to recharge, relax, and reconnect. As the room in which family and friends spend most of their time, a kitchen’s comfort, functionality and aesthetics are a high priority when it comes to design.

This kitchen-dining project was driven by the idea of creating a picture-perfect spot – a focal point to showcase as master of one’s abode. Here, uniqueness emerges at the intersection of stylistic influences. The originally Scandinavian kitchen is imbued with a contemporary twist through narrow shaker-style doors, white flush cupboards and a modernist green island topped with a 10cm-thick worktop.

Brass handles bring an unerring sense of style to the space, along with a marble mosaic splashback that elevates the kitchen’s finish, intentionally and yet effortlessly. A separate breakfast and beverage station awaits the morning and evening rituals with an in-built coffee machine and wine cooler.

Clad in walnut flush doors, a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling storage compartment overlooks the dining area to meet the gaze opposite the kitchen. Just the spot for sublime entertainment. Merging the two spaces is a new, patterned cement floor, inspired by and infused with the artisanal tile tradition of Malta. The tiles’ green and earthy tones ground the space in character and charm, while the art-deco-inspired coving envelopes the kitchen-dining area in elegance – both simple and soothing.
