From the school
Here is a statement from one of our students:
"I am very happy with how the course has gone and feel a lot more confident to continue and progress in my current job. I feel my drawings have really improved and have a much better understanding of how to read other drawings. Valentin has been very supportive throughout the course. Thank you very much !"

MULTI-DIMENSIONAL – SCULPTURAL ISLAND FORMS A CENTREPIECE
Kitchen designer : Celia Visser CKD/CBDNZ, Celia Visser Design (Auckland)
Kitchen manufacturer : Laustsen Cabinetmakers
White on white – a sculptural island unit is the centrepiece of this sleek kitchen in a contemporary new house.
The island features a fine Corian benchtop that was engineered to accommodate an especially long span. Designer Celia Visser specified a commercial hood with twin motors to ensure the cooktop would be property ventilated.
A second working kitchen is positioned behind the rear wall. This incorporates solid oak shelving. As with the main kitchen, the splashback features an oak veneer.
A long entertainment unit on one side of the kitchen has a similar sculptural look.

From the industry
Julius Blum, a farrier and carriage smith by trade, founds his company on 1 March 1952. His first product is a horseshoe stud which prevents horses from slipping.
For unbelievable light and spacious appearance, for intelligent allocation of centers and for edgy match of textures and tones with a glamorous chandelier!
Hollis designed the kitchen--which features a Boffi kitchen system and Gaggenauappliances-- as three zones. The first centers around the stainless-steel-and-Zodiac-stone island, which is topped by a custom beaded chandelier by South African company TeamTwo Design. This zone functions as a place for food preparation, cooking, serving, and socializing. The second zone is the clean-up area, and the third is the bar.
