This project was a fresh challenge from the start and that makes the end result even more sasfying for the cabinet makers at Winchester Interiors. Working closely with the property owner and Belle magazine editor, Steve Cordony, the team at Winchester Interiors were tasked with bringing Steve’s vision to life.The famous Rosedale Farm is located in Orange, NSW. The rst step was a site visit to fully appreciate the potenal of the renovaon and to understand the unique natural environment in which the farm sits. Originally purchased a year before the renovaon, a temporary kitchen had been set up unl the renovaon could take place.The project took shape in stages with the inial concept from Steve, then the team at Winchester Interiors began producing 3D plans and concepts which were then further rened. Prototyping played an important role in ensuring the end result would match Steve’s vision — parcularly in the cabinet detailing and kickboard design. The team played with a variety of heights and even constructed a mockup of a small secon of the kitchen to allow them to see in person how the capping and moulding elements aected the heights required.This was a true joint venture and Steve relied on the experse of Winchester Interiors to execute the detail and make recommendaons about hardware to ensure the kitchen would funcon as desired. For ease of entertaining, Steve requested a number of large pocket doors so the kitchen could be fully opened up. This required not only quality European hardware but also aenon paid to the detailing within the cabinetry to ensure the internals had the same visual appeal as the exterior when on display.“This project was an incredible challenge but was so much fun to work on and the team really enjoyed working on something new and excing,” explains Mathew Watson from Winchester Interiors. “We CATEGORY SPONSOR:62021 ACFA INDUSTRY AWARDS

This also meant the team from Winchester Interiors needed to take into consideraon how to merge modern and tradional style without creang an eyesore.Internally, the drawers have been ed with custom internal sorng and storage that specically suits Steve’s items. For the cabinetry interiors, Winchester Interiors provided expert advice on the v-grooves and the best species of mber to create the desired eect.The ACFA judges were so impressed with this project, saying “the joinery in this entry is amazing. The aenon to detail and level of joinery skills sets this kitchen apart”.The installaon of the kitchen was fast-tracked over two days and the locaon meant it would be impossible to access the factory, so much consideraon went into having addional sheets and spare parts on site to accommodate any tweaking needed.With its bold, deep hue, the kitchen is an eye-catching addion to this regional home. All cabinets were hand painted in house at Winchester Interiors to the specied Porters Paint colour required. Brass inserts imported from overseas were incorporated into the design and the tradional moulding and capping on the island were custom made.For more informaon visit winchesterinteriors.com.auWinchester Interiors in conjunction with Steve Cordony72021 ACFA INDUSTRY AWARDS

The Dunes is a café and event locaon which enjoys a beach-front posion on Ocean Grove surf beach. Opening in 2019, The Dunes has quickly become a premier desnaon for a lazy brunch or oceanside occasion.Indetail Pty Ltd not only supplied all the joinery for the project but was also the contractor which built the café. One of the main prerequisites for the project was the ability for signicant furniture items to be moveable elements so the space could be recongured for various events. All the large units are mul-purpose and can be moved to various locaons within the café depending on the event being held. Each is made in three pieces which can connect together to create one large unit, or move individually on casters. This created the biggest challenge of the project which was in nding and securing the centre of balance for each piece. In order to create stability, the bases are made from structural steel, with the vercal elements CNC cut, creang the structure of the furniture. All the furniture was built using tradional furniture construcon methods — all dowels and glue with no screws.A major consideraon was the width of the bases as they had to allow for seang as well as the curved element. Specially chosen casters that were rated to take the weight of each of the units were specied and the base lled with bags of sand and structural steel to create a stable centre of gravity.Of parcular note are the bench areas on the back of each unit that allow for standing (and possibly leaning) for cocktail funcons or corporate events. Three large waiter staons are clad with curved copper sheeng but are also mobile units mounted on hidden casters, so they can be relocated where needed.The exterior of the building features mber cladding and curved elements so it was important the interior — designed by ZWEI Interiors & Architecture CATEGORY SPONSOR:82021 ACFA INDUSTRY AWARDS

This was an area that required detailed planning and excellent crasmanship to execute, but the Indetail team applied their experse to come up with a soluon that not only looks the part but is also perfectly manufactured.In the main bar area, the engineered stone cladding to the front of the bar reects the sandy tones from outside, while the interior is a funconal combinaon of solid mber and steel for stability.Victorian ash was chosen for the mber elements. Local to the area, it is synonymous with the stunning natural landscape and the perfect choice for this locaon. All fabric chosen for the upholstery is textured and has a very Hamptons/linen feel that reects the beige of the adjacent sand dunes. In addion to the moveable units, Indetail supplied all the bulkhead seats including the upholstery and solid mber components, wall cladding, acousc panels and dining tables.Indetail’s design director was deeply involved in this project and it required two in-house joinery detailers and drasmen as well to produce all the necessary documentaon and drawings prior to fabricaon. From start to nish the project spanned ve to six months with construcng taking around four months then the furniture design and manufacture taking another two months. Another challenge was transporng all the elements to the site, with parking near the beach needing to be carefully co-ordinated.The ACFA judges were incredibly impressed with this project and said “the exibility this design and construcon created for the premises is outstanding. Such a complicated and beauful design, yet so simple and elegant with a feel of biomorphic design”.For more informaon visit indetail.net.auIndetail Pty Ltd92021 ACFA INDUSTRY AWARDS
