Underneath The Stairs


Space is at a premium in any terrace house but the clever use of custom joinery has transformed this slender Paddington variety into a bright and spacious home for modern living.


Located in the centre of the house, the kitchen is in a high traffic area but fully integrated appliances and some brilliant storage solutions have kept clutter out of sight.

An induction cooktop and under mount sink deliver full kitchen functionality while ensuring the clean lines of the design are maintained.
Behind the sliding, toughened mirror splashback are 150 mm deep cabinets for spices, glasses and hanging cooking utensils.

While in most houses, the nook below the stairs goes to waste – here its home to a fridge/freezer and a fully stocked pantry. The choice of a white palette has maximised the available natural light and provided a seamless living space from room to room.
