The design brief was to create a kitchen, which was modern and striking, a real “wow” factor, set within a grade 2 listed, Victorian manor house. The design also had to be ergonomic, functional, and embrace the need for entertaining with family and friends.
The room was an awkward shape, with a large central chimney breast to the east wall, which created narrow deep alcoves to the sides, along with a wall section which had to remain; this left the area feeling uninspiring and disproportionate for the size of house.
Rather then trying to follow the walls, the fluid nature of the kitchen design shrouds the corners, and meanders out to the adjoining room, creating a larger working footprint, which in turn allows for a larger more proportional kitchen design.
The Metallic Graphite/Grey gloss hand lacquered finish, animates the curvature on the bespoke furniture, changing colour as you move around the kitchen. Within the design a dishwasher either side of the sink, become integrated into the curved furniture, the only straight line houses the ovens and integrated fridge freezer. Feature lighting illuminates the traditional coving and ceiling bulkhead
The style of the kitchen is clean and sleek lines, softening the entire room, and fusing with its traditional setting.
