2020 HIA Australian Kitchen of the Year

Winner: JAG Kitchens South Australia

South Australia’s JAG Kitchens took out the coveted title of 2020 HIA Australian Kitchen of the Year for this stunning project that synthesises matte black and timber, with the winners announced during the virtual 2020 HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards presentation on 29 May.  
Described as ‘a pleasure to work in’ and, impressively, ‘the greatest kitchen I’ve seen in a decade’ by one judge, it’s safe to say this kitchen has the wow factor. 
An intrinsically welcoming space, with a harmonious blend of warm timber and calming dark hues, the design boasts a discreet bar area and integrated appliances.
Encompassed by a golden sandstone wall on one side and exposed black bricks on the other, this functional space has been crafted to perfection and is one that people will want to be in, work in, and entertain in.
Brightened by elegantly simplistic lighting design, this space is as inspired as it is versatile, with the island bench available for bar stool seating or preparation space. 
The HIA Australian Kitchen of the Year award, partnered by Miele, acknowledges quality of workmanship in the manufacture and installation of a complete single, residential kitchen.
