Congratulations to Cochrane Design, winner of the Kitchen Over £25,000 Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2014

Cochrane Design successfully won the Kitchen Over £25,000 Award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014.

The project is a collaboration between Sean Cochrane and the client to redesign her fire-damaged home. The brief was to create a light, bright, open plan, contemporary space with a minimalist aesthetic at the heart of the design scheme. CochraneWhiteHouseThumbanilresized

The kitchen had to be both functional and exceptionally beautiful; therefore the choice of materials for the Island was of paramount importance. After copious testing with client’s chosen contractor, Unique Construction, the Island drawers were created with an arched wooden frame wrapped in durable resin. The final result was a stunning, seamless and sculpted curved shape. Corian work surfaces were used throughout the kitchen as they appealed to the client’s modern aesthetic, and as a finishing touch, Cochrane Design managed to obtain the prototype white Zip Hot Tap which completed the bespoke pristine white centre piece. CochraneWhiteHouse2resized

The pale grey, ultra smooth concrete flooring was constructed with under-floor heating and up lighters set flush into the floor, minimising clutter. The different sections of the room are defined with floating ceilings, which helps to inject a little warmth into this otherwise perfectly cool London Home.
