This client came to us with a desire to create an open kitchen-living space that would serve as a hot spot for family living in their new- build home. At the time they were living in a dorma bungalow on the land but architects were involved in designing a new contemporary home on the same plot. The kitchen needed to be clean and contemporary but not sterile. It needed to maximise light since the house is built on a steep slope and the kitchen area is effectively underground.
A glass ceiling over part of the space meant that consideration had to be given to maximize the light from this window and reduce the potential for shadows. Whilst in a full-ceilinged room this area may have been perfect for the tall appliance housing, base units were selected to provide an airy work space for food preparation. A bespoke unit was created to house bottles of wine using space between the sink run and the dumb waiter. As the cost to use SieMatic panels was prohibitive we crafted a unit from mdf and had it sprayed in a laquer to match the units The Outcome
It’s not often that a breakfast bar has to seat 5 and not often that space allows this but for this room, a gentle asymmetrical ellipse provided the perfect solution. Not only can all the family enjoy a casual meal together, mum still has plenty of space to prepare and serve up the meal without fighting for work surface space. What the client said
