concrete, bamboo & cork kitchen

My three favourite materials come together in this kitchen renovation project. I made a virtually indestructible concrete counter-top with a selection of local aggregates, iron oxide pigments and high-tech admixtures. The surface is seeded with mother-of-pearl and features some inlaid fossils. Bamboo panels make up all the casework and cork tiles cover the walls. Best of all, the kitchen works wonderfully, and is a pleasure to use.

Black and white tiled bathroom

The sinuous curve of this custom-built vanity top adds a dynamic element to a long, narrow bathroom. The bathroom features a restored claw-foot tub, recycled 1950’s steel kitchen cabinet doors, a custom-made shower curtain rod, a heated black granite floor with white marble inlays, a skylight and wall-to-wall tile.
