A continuously flowing design that harnesses natural light to achieve a sense of increased space paired with clever ergonomic design.

The couple were interested in a kitchen tailor-made to suit their new space. The client is a keen and talented cook that enjoys spending time in the kitchen thus practicality, storage and the best electrical appliances and gadgets were a must. They both wanted one wall of floor-to-ceiling cabinetry to conceal the fridge, the ovens and the wine cooler, an island with the hobs and base units throughout the rest of the scheme.

The continuation of materials and textures throughout the design are a unique feature in this kitchen. The veins of the marble stone running up the wall, transforms electrical sockets from a visual disturbance into a design feature. The key aspect is a continuous design flow.

The design makes the most of the light in the space, a ‘culinary living room’ in a dark monochromatic palette to ensure harmony with the rest of the home. A less dominant kitchen with hidden appliances that becomes the social hub of the home

The kitchen borrows materials more traditionally included in the living room and so evokes a sense of homeliness by nature. The glowing lighting, above the scandi solid oak dining table and chairs, creates a sense of calmness which is a theme that runs throughout the space. Minimal but not cold
