  • MORE
  • Emergence of new technology and cooking styles, the humble BBQ has been elevated into another experience again. The art of outdoor cooking is much more than just coals, grill and gas burner. Whether in our own backyard or beyond, we love to immerse ourselves in exterior spaces. We also love a good BBQ. Sharing the sense of community and friendship that outdoor cooking and dining provides is built into our DNA.

  • I envisioned a solution that could create the true experience of an exterior working kitchen, designed around modules - the idea that elements could come together to form a space reflecting the uniqueness of each user. We have been highly selective in the products used, choosing robust materials proven to endure the lashings of an exterior environment. Steel for its longevity and strength. Sheet porcelain for its durability and its ability to withstand every natural element - heat, cold, wet, sun, snow, frost. Natural hardwood to provide a connection with the landscape. Stainless for its superior functionality and food safe cleanliness.

  • Kītini kitchens make the creation and sharing of food a seamless, joyful experience. Each element is beautiful yet functional, a single part of a cohesive whole. Every aspect has been considered to ensure maximum function - working storage units formed from robust steel, seamless refrigeration, standalone BBQ unit, sink and prep zone with waste system. Beyond function lies form, with aesthetics bringing together natural, architectural and culinary cues. Hardwoods provide soft layers that speak to the surrounding environments while stainless steel surfaces provide practical, clean surfaces to work on.

  • Tailored to you. Kītini brings you freedom (and fun!) of design. Your space is the hero. Bring it to life with as little or as much of a kitchen as you need. Whether you want a simple BBQ, a fully functional kitchen or something in between, Kītini adapts to you. Kītini puts bespoke outdoor kitchens within everyday reach. Because Kītini is composed of pre-designed and pre-made elements it's much more affordable, allowing you to stretch your renovation or design budget further. Creating connections. At heart, Kītini is about kitchen and kin - a stunning outdoor space where all your favourite people come together to create, enjoy and share amazing food and great company. Kītini is the place that makes it possible. Kītini combines intelligent design and superb craftsmanship with a simple modular approach, to create customised outdoor kitchens that are robust, stylish and refreshingly affordable.
