Mancini Made is a winner in the 2022 Master Builders Excellence in Housing Awards. Our project, The Reserve, took out the prize for this year’s Best Kitchen under 40k which was our first time entering this category.
The Reserve was a unique proposition for our company, up until this project we had never taken on a design renovation/fit-out without an extension or new build component.
Mancini Made ensures that the interior design of The Reserve embodies understated luxury. The internal space is softly defined using a curve motif, visible in the island bench and bar, whilst a restrained approach to materiality sees stone and a George Fethers wooden floor exist in delicate harmony.
Experimentally, Mancini Made combines light dove grey joinery with silver ash stone and a darker floor, establishing a nuanced colour palette of surprising warmth. By using azure blue inside the amenity bar in the kitchen – another unexpected element – a dynamic colour contrast is added to the entertainment space.
We must say, it was a fun little project and we would love to do more of them! We had the freedom to design to our hearts content playing with new colours, shapes and forms. It was a tight space with a few constraints however we managed to make it pack a punch!
