Shortlisted: Knightsbridge Kitchen by Boscolo

Boscolo have been shortlisted for the Kitchen Over £25,000 Award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2015

The project brief was to redesign the complete apartment, creating a design aesthetic that was in keeping with our client’s requirements, complemented by a new automated home lighting design scheme. Boscolo’s favourite aspect is the utilisation of the space they created, which makes it perfect for hosting, delivered by the open plan layout of the kitchen. However, with the open plan design, the kitchen had the potential to feel pretty sparse, so the team included a dropped ceiling detail in order to make the space feel more fitted and intimate.


With the wine easily accessible from the neighbouring bar area, the drinks will flow at the kitchen’s many parties. And with the inclusion of a breakfast table extending from the island, as well as a ledge facing the hob, there is room for more informal entertaining with the scope for live demonstrations.


The finishes were Japanese inspired; the veined stone worktop surface contrasting with the wooden breakfast table and ledges. A polished plaster was used as a splash-back and on the adjacent wall to avoid the sheerness of a white finish, which would have made the room feel too cold. As with their client’s brief Boscolo wanted to make the wall spaces clean and clear in order to incorporate his selected artworks which have become a key focal point in the room.
