The stunning and distinctive fixed joinery and cabinetry associated with Apollo Kitchens can be found in the prestigious Arlington Grove development in Dulwich Hill.
The company supplied the kitchens, bathrooms, wardrobes, laundry and linen cabinets for the 246 apartments in the high end complex, over eight levels over four separate buildings.
“During this project, we worked with the developer, the architect and the builder to bring their vision to fruition without compromising the joinery’s design, functionality and the overall budget,” said Apollo Kitchens’ Managing Director, Peter Bader. “The design work for Arlington Grove is exceptional. It is a flagship project for us and we feel privileged to be nominated to work on this development.”
Two colour schemes were chosen for the joinery, a textured white Bianco and the dark brushed wood Nero with soft texture finishes. The joinery had unique dimensions to fit in with the aesthetics of the buildings.
“There are clever angles throughout the buildings and this required our design team to step away from using traditional cabinet dimensions to meet the architect’s plans. For example, we factored in a kitchen joinery recess of six degrees and geometric designed kitchen benches,” said Peter. “Bronzed mirrors on the shaving cabinets, sapphire glass with powder coated aluminium trim, floating basins and concealed lavatory systems were just some of the high end products and joinery we supplied and constructed.”
Apollo Kitchens dedicated site managers on the Arlington Grove development to ensure correct installation including finishing touches to meet the client’s stringent quality control requirements. “It was a labour intensive project and we aimed to achieve perfection. Due to the angled recesses, a number of joinery processes were re-evaluated, and we had to depend on traditional hard craft methods. The kitchen joinery required hand laminating, specialised hardware and manufacturing techniques not seen on large projects previously,” said Peter.
Innovative and traditional solutions were applied for project challenges to incorporate side recessed overhung wing line doors to fridges and integrate appliances into the joinery. “Delivering this project required extensive experience and lateral thinking of timelines and delivery constraints which we were able to bring to the table,” said Peter.
