Sitting at the rear of an existing residence in Prahran, Melbourne, this multi-functional room serves as a space for cooking, eating and living – and has been designed to maximise both space and comfort.
Each cupboard and drawer has been considered, and is the optimum size for its purpose. An organised and efficient kitchen is contained behind the cupboard doors, concealing as much visual clutter as possible while still allowing the space to function as a kitchen, as well as a relaxing dining space and living area.
A balanced geometry is achieved with the windows and doors. Views to the neighbouring residences are blocked by new highlight windows. By visually extending the room into the garden, the interior takes full advantage of the outdoor aspect – which serves as a strong visual focus for the room.
Working with Edra from the start, Italian designer Francesco Binfaré has produced some of the brand's classics, including the recent Pack and Chiara sofa.
