While there'splenty that's very early-'90s about this colourful kitchen€”the smoked-glass refrigerator, the short backsplash, the bold pattern, the industrial-inspired shelving€”the angular cabinets still feel compelling and relevant today.

The space was designed by architect Gordon Filewych for the firm Jenkins and Sturgess (which would later become Sturgess Architecture€”a stalwart in WL over the years), and was inspired by the artwork of homeowner Douglas Fraser: heavy black outlines that frame large chunks of colour. And those cabinets? When the homeowners couldn€™t decide on pulls, the architect devised the diagonal door cuts with triangular cut-outs.
