Award winning joinery: Murray Hewitt Joinery

True bespoke joinery requires talent to execute detailing and interesting twists in design.

Christchurch new build commissioned the team at Murray Hewitt Joinery to incorporate the beauty of curves, grandeur of wood, and strength of Neolith sintered stone throughout.

The dazzling result achieved Bronze in this year’s regional Master Joiner Awards, for Best Kitchen over $50k.
Kitchen fronts were clad in American White oak, polished to the client’s requirement of a stylish black stain, which integrated the fridge, dishwasher, and wine cooler.

The bench top and oven ran through to the window, and the induction hob was set flush, rebated into the Monolith bench top.

“We cut all the drawers back to a 45-degree angle for a negative detail. Handle-less and soft-closing, the results were seamless,” says director Murray Hewitt.

“A black basin was under-mounted into the Neolith-clad island, which was mitred to appear as one big block, with a solid-timber cantilevered bench top, to look like it’s floating.”

A scullery backs onto an impressive curved wall in black American Oak vertical slats, which flows on through to the office, while all internal doors are seamless in full ceiling height. The laundry, lounge unit, walk-in robe, powder room, and Neolith bathroom vanities also got the same tailored treatment.
