Having two kitchens isn’t exactly rare, but when they’re both for entertaining purposes, it’s a little surprising. In this home, one kitchen is used to serve hours d’ oeuvres and cocktails, whilethe other is used to cater for large dinner parties. Architect William Ong says when he designed the kitchens, he took the owners’ current lifestyle into account. " Because it’s an extended family situation, a big main kitchen is vital, there has been a fresh big kitchen cabinet," he says.
On a quiet day, the owners use it to cater for six to eight people, and when they entertain, it serves up to 30,” says Ong. The family’s future housing needs were also a design consideration. When the owners retire, the small servery will become their kitchen and the main kitchen will be for their children. In the meantime, the owners say they enjoy having two kitchens. “We can cook up a storm in the main kitchen, while the other stays tidy. It’s a real luxury,” says one of the owners.The serving kitchen features interesting blends of old and new, including wire mesh cabinet doors, a dark green marble benchtop, a gas cooktop and hanging antique meat safe.
The serving kitchen designed by William Ong is used to prepare cocktails. The only appliances are a refrigerator and a gas cooktop for keeping food warm. Features include white laminate cabinets with wire mesh panels, a dark green marble benchtop, and a suspended antique food storage cabinet.The main kitchen features a range of hard-wearing appliances and fittings, including full-length stainless steel benches, ground, and overhead cabinets, and a large oven with the ventilation unit. Both kitchens have a white floor and wall tiles contrasted with green wall trim. The white color scheme looks hygienic and provides a neutral backdrop for plants, colored mats, glazed pots, benchtop storage jars, and rattan baskets.
The main kitchen is used to provide daily meals for an extended family and to cater for large numbers of special occasions. It’s a practical, easy-maintenance design. Despite its narrow shape, the kitchen comfortably accommodates three people. Under bench down conditions allow them to work without being in their own shadows. so, let's make an area of the kitchen as the right places for cooking your favorite foods.
