Rockin’ Kitchen

large carrara kitchen islandThe island in this luxurious house made me pause it is so spectacular.

A massive chunk of Carrara Marble was flat polished on top; a natural sink was carved out with an access door for the plumbing.  The flush butcher block makes this piece of art a practical work space.

Often, thinking outside the box produces spectacular results.

Located in Kuala Lampur, this 32,000-square-foot residence and reception suites for three generations of a prominent Chinese-Malaysian family was created by Parisian interior and product designer Patrick Jouin and partner Sanjit Manku, a Kenyan-born Canadian architect.

This residence is the ultimate expression of the style, influence and industrial-scale capabilities of the prominent Chinese-Malaysian family whose entrepreneurial activities have shaped Kuala Lumpur’s skyline.

Note: Jouin recently split his firm into two entities: Agence Jouin Manku, overseeing interiors and architecture commissions, and Patrick Jouin ID, focused on industrial design.

  1. Oh my! Pretty spectacular! I wonder if it has drawers on the work side, or if the whole thing is solid through and through.
