High-end kitchen designer and manufacturer Apollo Kitchens supplied the streamlined and functional cabinetry for The Mint’s 100 apartments, which included the kitchens, wardrobes, linen cupboards, plus the cabinetry in the laundries and bathrooms.
“We work closely with Ceerose and they have a strong understanding of quality as well as a strong insight into the kitchen’s place in homes,” said Peter Bader, Apollo Kitchen’s CEO and Managing Director. The Apollo Kitchen’s team worked with the Ceerose design team to “make their concepts a reality and help bring the project together.”
“We are finding people are focusing more on their kitchens and realising they are spending more of their home time in the kitchen and using their culinary creativity. A great kitchen is one that allows a chef to be confident and daring. A great kitchen brings loved ones together to entertain and connect.”
The Mint’s fixed joinery features practical stone benchtops, sleek soft-close cabinetry with gorgeous mood lighting with an LED lighting set between the hanging cabinets and the smoky mirror splashbacks. They created a timber-veneer look with Polytec Ravine and polyurethane stained doors.
Apollo Kitchens work closely with clients to select the most suitable material to allow the design concept carry through into product and to ensure the longevity of the finish. This project required a satin finish on the kitchen island and upper cabinetry. Satin finishes have the potential to easily spoil and the Apollo Kitchens team worked hard to ensure the finish was durable and protected throughout the project. In every kitchen, there is a high degree of customisation and double-checking every measurement during installation to assure the joinery is seamless and proportional.
The company celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. It designs and manufacture itchens and has four manufacturing plants as well as showrooms in New South Wales.
Apollo Kitchens will open a new high tech factory to boost their capacity by an additional 400 kitchens a week. The new Smart Factory and Head Office will allow the company to continue its high quality and highly customisable offering for larger-volume projects.
“The new facility will complement our stone, paint and other cabinet manufacturing plants in New South Wales. This is an exciting new chapter for Apollo Kitchens and the industry will benefit immensely from this project as it will be able to produce customisable joinery at high volumes. We are embracing the next generation in manufacturing and taking the next step into the Industrial 4.0. The Smart Factory will set a new benchmark for Australian manufacturing and the joinery industry,” said Peter.
Apollo Kitchens are currently manufacturing and installing joinery for Jewel at the Ferry Terminal, Skyrise in Parramatta, Lake Promenade in Rouse Hill Town Centre, Ashfield Central in Ashfield and Arlington Grove in Dulwich Hill. The company has completed Urban Apartments in Camperdown, Savannah in Wenworth Point and Lumina in Ashfield.
With a reputation built on innovative and flexible design, expert craftsmanship and exceptional service, Apollo Kitchens have become the kitchen company of choice for countless home owners, interior designers, builders and commercial developers.
