Contemporary Bespoke Shaker Kitchen
- The clients had lived in the property for 19 years and having added a large extension in the 90’s had decided it was time for a large scale re-model.
- We were involved at the concept stage with our first task to produce an overall plan for the propertys that could be split down into two stages to enable the clients to be able to live in the property throughout the building works.
- A traditional 1930’s property it posed a number of opportunities and constraints that were considered at the concept stage. We then narrowed our design focus on the kitchen dining space and adjacent living room that was open plan to the dining area.
- The client had a number of pieces of artwork, furniture and equipment that needed to be included in the design, but with the opportunity to alter or up cyle these to fit in with the new concept.
- This project was very much about creating a stunning fluid kitchen dining space with a more formal living room
- Once the overall project concept was agreed with the client we produced detailed concept drawings for the kitchen, the dining and living room space.
- These were overlaid with visual concept boards for the kitchen diner and a separate one for the living room. This was then a case refinement until the client was happy with the design.
- Working drawings and sample boards were produced prior to final sign off, with schedule of works and lighting plans for the quoting.
- Our role was to project manage the installation. Due to the nature of the property our input was required frequently onsite to sketch out solutions and options to ensure the final installation met with the original brief.
- A light airy kitchen dining space with large bi-fold external doors and roof lights, the living room was separated off as a more formal room with the option to open up the internal French doors and patio doors to create, one large entertaining space with bespoke made to measure sofas and soft furnishings.
- The neutral and light colour pallet adds a luxury feel with natural textures such as limestone flooring, Cole & Son wallpaper and luxury wool fabrics.
- A luxury handmade birch faced plywood kitchen cabinets, hand painted tulip wood shaker doors, dovetail oak drawers and inserts with a Corian worktop.
- A concealed pantry which doubles up as an extension to the kitchen space and offers excellent storage.
- A carefully designed coffee and drinks area built within a dresser style unit.
- A following multipurpose space that offers flexibility for entertaining and daily use.
- The relaxed colour scheme make the space homely, yet un-cluttered and additional storage and office space meant through careful layout planning every inch of space was used to it’s full potential.
