For, “The Address” at Wentworth Point – Savannah project, a leading operator, Apollo Kitchens, supplied and installed kitchens and bathroom joinery from to its usual exacting high standards.
Each kitchen features stone benchtops, soft-close draws and polished chrome fittings. The bathrooms were designed and installed in line with the kitchens. “The modern kitchen design contains several standout features including fresh two-tone veneer finish cabinets and island. We installed non-adjoining, hanging wall cabinets housing the range hood, adding to the aesthetics of this quality kitchen design,” said CEO, Peter Bader.
Apollo Kitchens assigned two teams to manage and install joinery over a four-month period. Delivering the cabinets for the kitchens into the high-rise was not a problem for this experienced company. It came down to logistics. “We had to work out what is best for the project by maximising the number of cabinets delivered to site and alleviate pressure on the site managers and operators.”
“Due to the tight access points, the delivery schedule was paramount to the project’s success. We had stringent coordination with the site manager to allow for the kitchens to be installed rapidly,” he said.
The kitchen range hood is encapsulated in a floating wall cabinet with v-grooves to create a traditional country style in the midst of a modern kitchen. This cabinet required creativity to suspend the cabinet and support the range hood. The doors are handle-less and the breakfast bars are layered with 50mm thick veneer panels at each end to produce a high quality finish. “Our manufacturing division used a unique process to achieve quality and uphold the style of the intended design,” said Peter.
The bathrooms were also designed in line with the kitchen, incorporating v-groove panelling behind shaving cabinets and open shelves. The bathroom also featured polished chrome fittings and stone benchtops.
