In contrast to large and often prestigious projects, we feature here one small residential kitchen where our expertise has been deployed to create a practical working environment for a busy household.
The space occupied by an existing kitchen and utility room has been combined to provide one multipurpose space for cooking, eating and utility functions.
A traditional Aga cooker was central to the brief together with a requirement for clean lines, practical surfaces and the use of environmentally friendly materials.
The 2 internal walls are lined with full height storage cupboards from the Valcucine Artematica range. The aluminium framed glass fronted units incorporate a comprehensive range of Miele built-in appliances.
A Miele washing machine and drier are built into an all glass base unit at one end of the space.
The main feature of the kitchen is the central island unit with a flamed granite worktop which cantilevers from one end of the base units to form a bar.
And that traditional Aga? Flanked on both sides by stainless steel drawer units from the Valcucine Meccanica range, the importance of the cooking position is expressed by a simple portal surround.
