Our vision for this bespoke luxury kitchen was to create a traditional silhouette for the cabinetry that complemented the Victorian architecture but with modern hues that were firmly rooted in the 21st century. We introduced Arts & Crafts-inspired rounded corners and criss-cross detailing on sides of the cabinets to complement the period architecture.
This bespoke luxury kitchen was very much for spending time in, so we concealed as much from view as possible to heighten the cabinetry’s sleek lines. We concealed all the Gaggenau appliances, including a fridge/freezer, bins and dishwashers, and hid the integrated Miele Nespresso machine and Leibherr wine cooler behind pocket doors. Even the scallop details on the units were designed to conceal air vents that aided circulation. The ultimate tidy kitchen.
Our bespoke luxury kitchen design was way beyond any normal kitchen design service, extending the room into different zones and functions. We crafted bespoke seating in the bay window that mirrored the kitchen furniture, adding different colour accents and textures to the upholstery to create a real focal point, as well as a starburst walnut veneer coffee table tinted in silver patina for muted tones. We also constructed the dining table and a media centre, and created a considered lighting design.
This was a luxurious kitchen space but still very much a working kitchen. We installed a classic Shaw’s sink with Perrin & Rowe aged bronze taps, bringing the space right up to date with a Miele combi steam oven and Lacanche double oven with griddle and teppanyaki plates. An integrated Miele combi microwave and Zip tap that does boiling hot, refrigerated cold and sparkling water were carefully hidden behind pocket doors. Finally, we commissioned made-to-order Armac Martin bronze handles that matched the taps perfectly for a fully pulled-together look.
