This intriguing architectural project was completed in August 2018, in New Plymouth, New Zealand.
We spoke to designer Annika Rowson about the process and her thoughts behind the design.
Buster + Punch Interior designThe aim was to create a bold, moody yet practical kitchen that would not only service the needs of a large family, but to also create a striking space with plenty of wow factor. The kitchen needed to flow well with multiple people using it at any given time, so spacious work zones & ample benching were key.

The interior is very raw with polished marble concrete floors, a 5m high cathedral pitch, stunning cedar ceiling and four vast skylights. With large areas of glass, the walls were painted in various darker shades, to anchor the spaces & add a moody ambiance. The home is split into pavilions and is essentially very eclectic and layered.

Blue Steel was specified for the lower kitchen cabinetry, with Dekton benching & a tall feature wall of Arcymatte cabinetry, fitted with black pull bars. This was continued through into the custom vanities & laundry.

Smoked Bronze door levers were fitted to all interior doors in the home, and matte black T-bar handles to the laundry & master wardrobe. Hooked 3.0 Nude chandeliers also feature through the home, creating an elegant statement in the bathrooms & bedrooms.

Buster + Punch Interior designThe secret to the atmosphere lies in keeping it simple, allowing function over form – yet being bold enough to add enough punch to make spaces memorable & unique. Thoughtful material selection are key to creating beautiful spaces.
