Our clients main aim for the aesthetic of the space was to achieve a dominant industrial feel, complimented harmoniously by hints of a Scandinavian influence. Working within the long parameters of the room’s proportions, our client was an avid home chef so it was essential to ensure that circulation was always accessible whilst not interfering with the perfect working space. With this in mind we designed a vast central island with a bespoke integrated dining table which spanned the entirety of the 2 large bi-folding door openings.
The design primarily adopted the minimalist approach of clean lines. Using solid concrete, we enveloped the entire island which then waterfalls down onto the 3M long bespoke dining table. The kitchen style combined 3 main materials, bespoke, smooth painted cabinetry in Farrow & Ball Pitch Black No. 264, bespoke smoked French polished oak wood to add texture against the clinical, smooth concrete surfaces. This truly unique space is certainly a statement; our clients were ecstatic at the outcome and has not only improved but transitioned perfectly into their everyday home life.
We constructed the work surfaces using solid 50mm thick reinforced, polished concrete. The island and dining table top each weighed approximately 300Kg, requiring 6 men to lift it into the property.
We used knotty oak frontages and rails which were French polished to achieve the dark, smoked staining.
The Novy Dempo hob created the perfect focal point which integrated into the concrete work surface seamlessly.
Utilising solid, knotty oak rails we installed a handless rail system. The bespoke doors were chamfered at the top to allow a handle grab.
We constructed a bespoke dining table utilising a solid concrete top and an architecturally designed base to our client’s specification which was French polished to match the rest of the wood apparent in the kitchen.
