This Brisbane kitchen has been named the best in Australia
A home in Brisbane’s southeast can now claim to have the best kitchen in Australia after scooping a national award over the weekend.
The property at Redland Bay took out 2019 Housing Industry Association Australian Kitchen of the Year award.
The kitchen was the brainchild of Brisbane-based firm Darren James Interiors and has a dramatic black, white and wood scheme with rich accents of gold and silver.

The HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards showcased the talent of the nation’s top builders and designers, with finalists from across the country in 22 categories including Professional Builders, display home, apprentice, bathrooms and kitchens.
HIA managing director Graham Wolfe said “these members are reaching the highest standards in workmanship, are innovative, and pushing the boundaries with design”.
He said the winners had “achieved one of the highest accolades” before their peers.
Queensland firm ARIA Property Group scooped up two awards for their riverside Oxley & Stirling development – the 2019 HIA Australian Apartment Complex and 2019 HIA Australian Outdoor Project.
“The apartment building was applauded for luxe communal living including a theatre room, library and dining space with chef for hire. The rooftop outdoor space offers something for everyone, with private dining, pool side lounges or bean bags for more casual get-togethers,” a HIA statement said.
The top house on the night – Australian Home of the Year – was taken out by a gravity-defying home by Bellevarde Constructions from NSW, with a “sharp angular facade clad twice in stone and zinc, and cantilevered to create a gravity-defying illusion”.
It was also named the 2019 HIA Australian Custom Built Home.
The awards were handed out on the final night of the HIA 2019 National Conference in Perth.
