The same wooden slat design with its black negative groove was used for the front and sides of the island, but here Craig has done away with boxy contemporary and introduced curves.
The curves were interesting to play with, creating beautiful sculpted corners. The same soft curve is used on the island's Corian benchtop, and also on the stainless steel top that flows from the cooking zone into the scullery.
Craig also introduced curves into the kitchen's fifth zone the coffee nook. This consists of dedicated cabinetry for the coffee machine and for storage, as well as cafe-style seating taking in lake views.
"It's almost like having a second island," she says.
