Mr & Mrs Allen live in a large detached property in the nice end of town, both professionals they were embarking on removing some internal walls between their existing kitchen and dining room to open up a kitchen dining living space. The removal of the wall would require a vertical steel that would need incorporating with in the design. The kitchen the hub of the space needed function well and sit harmoniously with the other elements of the space. They were looking for an interesting design with built in appliances, storage, breakfast bar type seating (two people day to day) with a place for everything. Coffee machine was very important as was a large island, larder storage, wine cellar, integrated bins, Quooker boiling water tap.

What We Did

Biggest challenge was the vertical steel with underfloor heating controls and low height ceiling (2245mm) positioning of the island to work with the above. Low ceiling enabled us to fit the tall units to the ceiling with the use of a ceiling scribe and we made a ceiling box to house the island extractor.

The Result

The two most striking elements of the design are the positioning of the ovens and coffee machine housed within 60mm panels brought forward from the tall housings and extending out to one side giving the impression that they are floating.

This detail was then repeated with the breakfast bar as a canter levered breakfast bar extending out from the island offering seating for up to 5 people but for two people to sit comfortably opposite each other day to day.

The open shelving on the island also required some careful designing as it needed to be structurally strong enough to support the canter levered breakfast bar but also constructed with concealed fixings.
