A world of quiet luxury with Fisher & Paykel

Of all the rooms in the house, it’s the kitchen where the job description has expanded the most.

Part food preparation and service area, in many homes it also serves as a homework hub, home office and the key point of supervision and activity. Add to that its position in open plan design and it’s an extraordinary amount of pressure to put on one room to perform.

The choice of appliances, then, is critical.

In this apartment in Melbourne’s desirable St Kilda, Wolveridge Architects have designed an open plan space that is as efficient as it is beautiful. Taking its design cues from the 1980s tower from the Parkside Apartment’s exterior architecture, custom designed joinery allows the spaces to flow seamlessly from living to kitchen, offering the perfect transition for entertaining guests as the action moves from the kitchen to the dining space and even onto the balcony.

Inclusions such as the integrated Fisher & Paykel Column Freezer and Column Refrigerator designed into the cabinetry allow the living, dining and kitchen space to be read as one quietly elegant space ideal for intimate evenings at home, as well as hosting family and friends.

The decision to specify induction cooktops was a deliberate nod towards futureproofing the space as we move towards fossil-fuel free goals. A blueprint for how well adaptive reuse can be executed, this hardworking apartment now exudes an air of effortless luxury ideally suited for 21st century living.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially put their massive Los Angeles mansion on the market for $68 million.

The lavish Beverly Hills property hit listing sites on Thursday, months after rumours began that the couple, who are reportedly estranged , were shopping the home around only a year after buying it for nearly $61 million.

The roughly 5-acre property—which is in a gated community and spans a massive 38,000 square feet—includes an indoor sports court with an adjacent gym and games room, according to the listing with Santiago Arana of the Agency. The firm declined to comment.

Lopez and Affleck paid $60.8 million for the compound in 2023.

Built in 2000, the house has 12 bedrooms and a whopping 24 bathrooms. The resort-sized property has the amenities to match, including a V-shaped pool with views over the surrounding hills, a detached two-bedroom guardhouse and a 5,000-square-foot guest penthouse, according to the listing.

Listing images of the house show that Lopez and Affleck have spent the past year warming up what were fairly white-washed interiors when they purchased the home. There’s now a rich, green-painted dining room, hardwood floors and carpeted over cold, polished-stone flooring.

The couple, who got married in 2022 after reuniting some 20 years after they called off their engagement in the early 2000s, purchased the megamansion following a house hunt that went on for several months, The Wall Street Journal reported at the time.

Representatives for Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
