Walls Bros Designer Kitchens and Klemm Homes

2022 HIA Australian Kitchen of the Year

Partnered by Clipsal by Schneider Electric

Winner: Walls Bros Designer Kitchens and Klemm Homes

South Australia’s Walls Bros Designer Kitchens and Klemm Homes took out the coveted title of 2022 HIA Australian Kitchen of the Year for an elegant kitchen. The winners were announced during the 2022 HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards presentation on 23 April on the Gold Coast.

The kitchen combines classic sensibilities with contemporary execution. An oval island bench provides a dedicated prep space, additional storage area, and entertaining zone. The kitchen and butler’s pantry provide ample storage with a white-on-white delicate interior.

Venetian rendered walls, white appliances and barely visible rangehood are sophisticated, and the stone marble top provides a textural element and creates an unlikely warmth in the space.

Judges remarked on the softness of the shapes and the elegant and restrained repetitious curves throughout. Also commenting on the attention to detail in the joinery, with each door and curved island bench all handcrafted.

HIA’s Managing Director Graham Wolfe said the HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards recognise the best in Australia’s residential building industry.

“HIA is committed to recognising the outstanding achievements of our members. The HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards allow us to acknowledge the skill and commitment of our members who excel in building exceptional homes, kitchens and bathrooms and have highly successful businesses.

“The workmanship of Award winners is exceptional; demonstrated in projects that push the boundaries in design and innovation. It is my absolute pleasure to congratulate each winner for their hard work and commitment to excellence.

The HIA Australian Kitchen of the Year award partnered by Clipsal by Schneider Electric acknowledges quality of workmanship in the manufacture and installation of a complete single, residential kitchen.
