Kuroi Shaker

My reinterpretation of the Shaker style in the form of a kitchen.

The Shaker furniture style stood for simplicity, practicality, and honesty of materials - an aesthetic and approach that I can relate to with my Japanese background. 

Located within a Victorian cottage (built in 1890) in Carlton, this kitchen is a very functional space despite its modest proportions.

Offcuts and leftover materials from my previous projects are featured extensively throughout: American ash & marble counter tops, black forescolor panelling for vertical surfaces, and mismatched plywood for the cabinets.
