The L-shaped island allows for a free flow of movement through the space as well as providing a work surface within reach of every storage unit. We created further space for preparation & mixing within the old chimney breast and included an additional work surface that is discreetly built within a pocket door system where tea and coffee could be made without interrupting the sleek design. Positioning the hob so that it faces the seating area gives the host a feeling of being at the head of the table while cooking, making guests feel comfortable to sit and relax. State of the art Miele appliance give this stunning yet practical kitchen remarkable functionality, exactly what our client was looking for.
Another element of the brief was to create a sense of cohesion between the kitchen and living areas without allowing the large kitchen to dominate. We achieved this by extending the kitchen island into a dining area, introducing the same oak finish as the tower units for a sense of fluidity whilst giving a comforting nod to a traditional dining table. Beautiful and quirky globe pendant lights positioned over the seating area emphasise the contrasting zones of the working and living space, with downlights providing a very minimal and practical lighting option.
