director penny del castillo wins kBdi's victorian kitchen designer of the year for 2019.
On 3rd August 2019, In Design International was thrilled to have their Director & Founder, Penny del Castillo attend the annual Kitchen & Bathrooms Designers Institute (KBDI) Awards Gala in Melbourne only to be awarded the KBDI’s Victorian Kitchen Designer of the year.
Award presented by Managing Director Rob Sinclair of E&S. The award was attributed to the renovation design works of a Port Melbourne townhouse for our bachelor client.
“This bachelors’ life really does revolve around his kitchen, particularly at the moment, as he doesn’t own a dining table yet! The kitchen is his main area for entertaining, alone or with guests. It serves as the food storage and prep area along with dining, serving coffee, cocktails and drinks plus for now, it doubles as the electronic hub station/ home office when required!”
“Our semi industrial style capitalises on current available trends in concrete looking surfaces, without the challenges of real concrete in a renovation situation. Selections of materials and finishes were all keenly channelled to reinvent the key areas of concern in this home. Almost monochromatic in our choices, a heavy use of greys, charcoals and blacks off set with muted metallic and stainless steel make this kitchen bold, masculine and relaxing.”
Penny & In Design International were delighted to have been awarded a further 2 awards on the night, including KBDI Winner for Designer Small Bathroom of the Year Victoria & KBDI Winner for Designer Small Kitchen on the Year Victoria.
