Royal Melbourne Hospital Lottery Home
Congratulations to the lucky grand prize winner of the Royal Melbourne Hospital Home Lottery. If you missed out, fear not, you can use the experience to note down ideas for your own home build or renovation.
The builder of this showstopper, Mazzei Homes collaborated with Webster Architecture on the design – and the result is breathtaking. As you enter the home you are immediately taken by the abundance of natural light from the 3m-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, while a beautiful timber open staircase in the entrance creates a dramatic focal point.
Moving through the space, you come to the kitchen, the beating heart of the home. A collaborative design between Webster Architecture and The Kitchen Design Centre, one of Mazzei Homes’ key partners, the striking kitchen includes all the elements and mod-cons you would expect of a luxury home. A leading name in the industry, The Kitchen Design Centre has been delivering outstanding custom kitchens and joinery since 1994. The entertainer’s kitchen also includes a butler’s kitchen/pantry with V-Zug appliances, integrated fridge and Italian marble benchtops. The piece de resistance is the island bench, which brings an element of texture to the materials palette. The V-ZUG wall oven is cradled by joinery in fingerprint-resistant Laminex Absolute Matte. Hafele tapware, Franke sinks and Blum soft-closing drawers round things out.
In the living room, The Kitchen Design Centre helped bring the idea of retreat to a luxe new level with moody joinery and built-in storage around the gas fireplace. There’s also custom cabinetry in the rumpus area, a stone-composite hearth, and a built-in study nook overlooking the manicured garden and swimming pool. An outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue and waterfall-style stone benchtop is a highlight in the adjacent courtyard. The rooms are thoughtfully designed and considered, each contributing to the harmonious whole.
The Kitchen Design Centre has designed and built some of Melbourne’s most luxurious kitchens in private homes and prestige venues. If you are renovating your kitchen or home, the company’s expert designers can assist in maximising space with style. Proudly Australian, The Kitchen Design Centre designs and manufactures all pieces in its own Melbourne factory. Showrooms are in Blackburn and Eltham, Victoria.
