The Evolving Kitchen
This exciting bespoke design was created in collaboration with our client, Interior Design consultant Taylor Smith, who wished to relocate his kitchen to the dining room of his spectacular period home. Our brief was to work around the period features to design a central kitchen which would appear as if a contemporary art installation or ‘pod’ had landed in the middle of this beautiful character filled room.
In order to provide a fully functioning kitchen within this centralised design we installed Fisher and Paykel dishwasher drawers, Hotpoint fridge drawers, three BORA hobs, two BORA extractors and a sink with customized Quooker within one side of the large 4 metre island. On the opposite side the client’s desire for the appearance of art was created through the use of metallic bronze panels with a patina finish which we sourced and used to front the run of push opening drawers with walnut interiors.
In keeping with the centralised brief, the Miele oven stack was positioned on the middle back wall and surrounded by two glass fronted larder cupboards and four cabinets.
LED lighting has been installed within the cabinets and also beneath the Silestone Quartz worktop so that the look of the kitchen evolves from daytime through to night. Custom made brass handles complete the design.
Our client, Interior Design consultant Taylor Smith, wanted a contemporary kitchen pod that appeared as if it had landed in the middle of this period room. Aesthetically the island should resemble a piece of art and look as stunning by day as it did by night.
The cabinets and one side of the drawers have been handpainted in Mahogany, while metallic bronze panels with a patina finish have been used for the drawers on the 'art' side of the island. This metallic effect has then been complemented with the use of a customized brass finish on the Quooker and custom made brass handles.
We love how this kitchen is constantly evolving. The patina finish on the metallic drawers will develop over time while the LED lighting used under the worktop and within the glass fronted cabinets helps the kitchen transform effortlessly from daytime into night.
