“This is one of my favourite projects to date,” says Corboy. “Its bold colours make for a statement design and it was one of the first in New Zealand to be completely designed from glass.”

“My brief was to provide a statement kitchen in the back of this renovated villa. The client wanted something that was bright, yet sophisticated,” says Corboy.

A subtle palette of white, stainless steel and pale oak veneer features in an Australian kitchen which won Corboy kitchen designer of the year in 2009.

This kitchen features Pacific Sea Blue glass drawers and cupboards, coupled with a dark walnut veneer island and dark granite top.

This kitchen is part of a major extension at the back of a grand villa, and features a 7-metre island made from Corian with two butler sinks.

“As this apartment features an abundance of fine artwork, I ensured my colour choices enhanced the pieces that were to feature within the space,” Corboy says.

In this kitchen blonde, vertically grained timber cabinetry flows right up to the schist, contrasting with the chocolate lacquer of the island shelves and the stained oak floor.

This penthouse apartment was designed to have the feel of a high-end luxury club. Corboy wanted it to say “let’s entertain”.

This apartment kitchen is the owners’ Auckland base for themselves and friends to use. They wanted easy-care surfaces, and a young and funky feeling to the space.

In 2014, this kitchen won the Society of British Interior Designers Kitchen of the year award. The island reflects the curved concrete bulkhead that runs like a spine through the house.

Self-taught kitchen designer to the stars, Mal Corboy, is renowned for his wow-factor kitchens, which often include eye-catching colour.

“A great kitchen needs both functionality and form,” says Corboy, who recently released his book Mal Corboy Kitchens. “I love my work…I get to be creative and change people’s lives for the better. So it’s not a job that is 9 ’til 5, it’s my life and I am always looking for inspiration and hopefully inspiring others with what I am doing.”

Born in Perth and formally a train driver, Corboy is now one of New Zealand’s most well-known kitchen designers, renowned for his penchant for pink.

“As this apartment features an abundance of fine artwork, I ensured my colour choices enhanced the pieces that were to feature within the space. The apartment has gorgeous views over the marina, so I used light coloured glass doors so they can stand in various spots in the kitchen and nearly always catch glimpses of the sea reflected in the glass,” Corboy says.

“This kitchen is part of a major extension at the back of a grand villa. Because of the length of the room I chose to do a seven-metre island made from Corian featuring two butler sinks to provide balance and better functionality to the space. Packed with detail, this kitchen sits well within the beautiful home. As the client is a fan of black and white, I used the monochromatic tones to enhance the intricate detailing,” Corboy says.
