Congratulations to Lida Cucina, winner of the Kitchen Over £50,000 Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2014

Lida Cucina successfully won the Kitchen Over £50,000 award in the International Design & Architecture Awards 2014.

A bold statement is made by Pedini’s contemporary Integra kitchen, in grey oak and silver grey lacquer, with stunning curved breakfast bar.


The challenge and brief of this project were somewhat unusual, an Oak Tree that was situated on the plot is subject to a preservation order, so the whole house was designed to gently curve around it. The kitchen had to make a statement, not just from ground level, but also from the top of the walkway that runs from the main entrance down behind it. The curved breakfast bar creates a sociable area for informal dining and entertaining, and softens the hard lines of the rest of the kitchen.  Open oak shelves have been used as an architectural feature around the tall units, unifying both the architecture of the house and Oak Tree.


Designer Kate has used Grey Oak as it is more contemporary, and when combined with glossy Silver Grey lacquer, it reflects the natural light that floods in from outside. The high specification appliances include a downdraft extractor, boiling water tap, warming drawers and two fridge freezers, everything for a modern family who enjoy entertaining.
