Double Bay Project

The clients were looking to renovate the back of their Double Bay home to accommodate extra rooms, including a kitchen and scullery. But when Dan Kitchens came on board, the project took an unexpected turn – and became the company’s biggest job to date. It was discovered early in the design process the size of the existing space could not fit everything the clients wanted.
When this was communicated to the clients, they decided to demolish the rear of the home and rebuild so they could have the rooms they wanted, without compromise. Once the clients were confident with the way Dan Kitchens worked, the rest of the joinery within the home was commissioned. In total, Dan Kitchens Australia designed, built and installed joinery in over 20 rooms.

Concealed TV in raised position

Within the living room, a low cabinet conceals a retractable tv. The tv is taller than the cabinet so partially retracts into the concrete slab.
