A bespoke, fully handmade and hand painted kitchen is based on the modern shaker style with shallow simple profiles. It is painted in a warm grey along with the walls to give a sense of enclosure. Overall, the design is understated with its palette of oak, matt honed Carrara marble and dove grey, but charged with warmth.
Simple techniques like replacing some of the door panels with glass to further enhance the light touch' visually allow a transit from one end of the building to the other.
From the kitchen door, a large bank of fully fitted units utilise every inch of space from floor to ceiling, and conceal the underfloor heating elements, integrated fridges, freezers and wine storage, bread drawers and cheese shelf, leaving an ample pantry section.
The solid oak shelving with integrated LED lighting above the sink area is a display space for some of the collected ceramics of the client. The vertical lines of the tongue and groove above the sink address the need to balance and take the visual weight out the the large units to the right.
The flooring is a large format honed Romany Blue limestone from Portugal and laid down in a quilted running length pattern, with various widths to subtly break up the large expanses.
Nordlux and kept clean and simple, with downlighting in a warm light LED.
