Apollo Kitchens is one of the leading and most experienced fixed joinery supplier in Australia.
Their services include design, manufacturing and installation for both residential and commercial kitchens. Established in 1968, they employ award winning designers working with their state-of-the-art facilities and have established a reputation for their innovative and flexible designs, outstanding craftsmanship and service.
Apollo Kitchens applied their high standard for the Marina Square project. Their scope of the work included the manufacture and installation of the fixed joinery for the apartments. All of the joinery was made to measure per apartment to ensure minimal gap filling. Apollo Kitchens also manufactured and installed the cabinetry for kitchens, bathrooms and laundries.
Marina Square comprises of 768 residential apartments constructed across two striking towers with five low rise boutique buildings. This development is the centrepiece of a thriving waterfront village and close proximity to Sydney Olympic Park.
Two understated palettes were chosen for residents to choose from. The ‘Stone’ scheme spoke to the metropolitan aesthetic, incorporated grey-washed Oak tile and white Carrara-look reconstituted stone, with a high contrast charcoal accent. The counterpoint ‘Wood’ palette features forest-engraved glass splashbacks with whitewashed Oak tile and Calacatta-look stone benches, for a softer and tranquil space.
Apollo Kitchens applied a protective finish on all their joinery products, including plastic seals for each door panel, which prevented any unintentional damage during installation of other services and appliances. The company also provided a quick turnaround for the manufacturing of the units with their inhouse automated paint line.
Some of the kitchens included an integrated laundry with a unique pull out pantry with a ironing board inside the joinery. Hidden corner storage units were installed to utilise all accessible storage. The drawers were created with shark nose handles to create a seamless finish. Apollo Kitchens was able to incorporate all the appliances into a kitchen with limited size constraints while ensuring that they all work functionally and look great.
Apollo Kitchens celebrated its 50th anniversary this year, and has four manufacturing plants and an additional four showrooms in New South Wales which are located in Smithfield in Western Sydney, Waterloo near Sydney’s city centre, Beresfield in Newcastle and Erina on the Central Coast.
Apollo Kitchens is still expanding with their new facility up and running, producing large quantities of kitchens and fixed joinery. The new system embraces modern methods of manufacturing and Apollo Kitchens are participating in industry conferences and tours, as well as discussions with government representatives, regarding the need to adapt to meet construction demands.
“We have recently announced our new high tech factory to meet industry demand for the future. We intend to set a new benchmark for Australian manufacturing. The new Smart Factory and Head Office will allow the company to continue its high quality and highly customisable offering for larger volume projects,” said Apollo Kitchens’ Managing Director, Peter Bader.
Apollo Kitchens is currently working on some of Sydney’s major commercial and residential developments including Fairwater for Frasers Property, Ashfield Central and Arlington Grove for Ceerose, Orchards for Sekisui House and GrandH by Deicorp.
