The art of culinary flow - From indoors to out


White is a perennial favourite for kitchens – classic, elegant, timeless – but the new white is one of tonal variation, of texture and materiality. And never is white more versatile than when used to link an indoor and outdoor kitchen/entertaining space – it creates fluidity and a perception of space yet imbues a sense of luxury and sophistication.

Ktchen design by Studio Minosa featuring Caesarstone® Porcelain Archetta™

In this indoor/outdoor kitchen designed by Studio Minosa, the two spaces are just a few short steps from each other, a purely functional element to facilitate the inevitable trips back and forth for ingredients or implements!

Materials are the tour de force in these spaces – sustainably produced Caesarstone Porcelain Archetta™ benchtops for both – plus light timber accents for cabinetry and floors, to add warmth and texture, along with finger tiles in a warm white and brushed copper metallics.   

The Porcelain Archetta™, with its soft, ivory-white base, is beautifully overlayed with charcoal grey striations that seemingly dissolve into the stone – along with small, mineral accents that appear courtesy of muted green and yellow crystalline layers.  The overall look – for the striking island bench, rear splashback and workbench, as well as outdoor kitchen surfaces – is one of honed translucency, calm and purity.

While together the materials exude luxury and serenity, each has also been selected for its longevity and durability – the design of these cooking, eating, entertaining spaces is modern and sophisticated, but they are also timeless in their appeal, with no elements requiring replacement in the foreseeable future.
