What Houzz contributors are saying:
SAOTA and TKD designed the hand-cut grey granite island bench, which exemplifies the exacting craftsmanship evident throughout the house. The rough character of the granite contrasts with the sleek joinery and smooth floor, and adds warmth through texture rather than colour. “The idea was to have an island bench that was a match for its surroundings. By chiselling out the island bench from a big boulder, we added an organic element that was a perfect contrast to the strong angular material palette,” Ratcliffe says.Bespoke dining table: designed by Alexandra Kidd Design; Kekke dining chair: Piet Boon
The island’s raw finish interrupts the sleek surfaces so prominent in the rest of the home. Texture rather than colour is used to add warmth and personality.
