Ocean Reef is a project that comprises two individual islands connected by a bridge that is approximately 160 metres long. A luxury private residential community where residents, Club members and guests can enjoy luxurious services. The island has a number of waterfront homes, surrounded by various lifestyle proposals for connoisseurs of luxury, with the possibility of accessing a full range of world-class services. The lush landscape is dotted with parks and recreation areas, including tennis courts and multi-purpose facilities.
MVK+ITALIA is the official manufacturer of the kitchens and bathrooms on offer to all of Ocean Reef’s clients. In collaboration with Projektocasa Plus, MVK+ITALIA designed and manufactured the kitchen that was fitted in the island’s show apartment, where the inauguration of the area took place on 1 September 2016. Depending on needs and personal tastes, all of Ocean Reef’s clients can request the same kitchen, or a variation of the same, for their apartment.
Located in Coco del Mar, situated in the metropolitan area of Panama City, Windrose is a sophisticated luxury complex with an enviable position, easy access to the main communication arteries of the area, as well as an effective security system protecting both residents and visitors. The wonderful view on the sea is joined by a vast array of facilities available to the residents: two large events’ rooms, a private gym and a big terrace surrounded by nature among them.
MVK+ITALIA is the official supplier of kitchens and bathrooms for Windrose. In cooperation with Projektocasa Panama, the first facilities have been already completed, with their delivery expected to begin at the end of 2017 and to finish sometime in 2018 together with the definitive end of the building process.
This kitchen is a perfect example of customisation. Using the +03 SP3 line as a base, the kitchen was customised with a glass worktop and sink; the worktop, the bottom of the drawers and the back of the column were silk-screen printed with a black and gold floral design chosen by the client; the same gold colour was also made available to the window and door manufacturer for the customisation of the finishes. The columns were customised with tops that are flush with the ceiling. Finally, the drawers open with + PUSH motorised system.
The skilful work of architect Carlo Zecchin, from Cologna Veneta (VR), has turned this kitchen into a place full of lighting effects, where everything is reflected in the shiny black surfaces, transforming the environment into an elegant room that is full of vitality. The increased perception of depth on the columns, in the elements of the countertop and in the splashback between the base and wall cabinets, give this kitchen a unique personality. It was created around the +02 minimal model and only in the length of the wall cabinets has been customised.
An interesting proposal by the designer Giulia Ramina from One Farm Design: a total white look broken only by two important steel elements, the countertop and cooker hood, which further characterise the meticulous style of this composition. The design of the island is picked up in the steel handles on the columns, creating overall consistency that accentuates the careful attention to detail. The pocket door system makes using the work area, ovens and coffee machine easier.
Vintage wood, MVK+ITALY’s new essence, was chosen as the central element of this composition. A bold design, in line with the latest trends in untreated, textured materials; the key to distinctiveness and exclusivity. To ensure the kitchen’s functionality, a brown quartz worktop was added, inserted into the vintage wood countertop, for use as a work and food preparation area.
