For the kitchen, architect Ivan Priatman selected an oven, hood, and cooktop from Teka and a Samsung refrigerator. While the table is his own design, the bar stools and chairs are from Informa.

"The ground floor layout and kitchen have been designed for simplicity and functionality. The dark weathered zinc on the exterior communicates with the blacks, whites, and grays of the interiors. However, the design of the interior achieves a softer touch by using bespoke detailing and a rich palette of materials such as stone and timber," says the architect.
"There's a nice tension that exists in this renovation. The building has exquisite original architectural details, and we kept the delicacy of that detailing at the front of our minds as we designed—allowing it to serve as our inspiration for the slender proportions that prevail in the kitchen and the dressing room millwork. We added arched elements on the existing windows. Additionally, an extra arched framing device that springs from corbels acts as a divider between the kitchen and dining room," explains Kevin Greenberg of Space Exploration.
