Josh Crosbie's Lorne house.
To say that the kitchen is the heart of the house is a cliché, but if it really is, you'll want it to last a long time. Luckily for architect Josh Crosbie, the first owners of the Lorne house made a good choice of materials when they built it in 1965, so all he needed was to wait about 9 years to buy it in 2020.
The wait was worth it, as Crosbie found the house intact, making some decor changes and opening up space, as he has a big family. Fate or not, the large kitchen table and 8 leather chairs had always been there, waiting for him and for times to cook together on Great Ocean Road.
The chairs and leather barstools by designer Gerald Easdon complete the open landscape facing the sea. If the list for a full kitchen includes functionality, efficiency, longevity, and of course, good looks, Crosbie can check all the boxes.
Consider where your kitchen is made, and how long the materials will last, and the heart of the house will beat for a long time.
A lasting, brutal, and welcoming home in Madrid.
