AN ARCHITECTURAL KITCHEN DESIGN
Our kitchen design process:
This handcrafted vintage oak and stainless steel kitchen sits proudly in a beautiful Surrey home.
The chosen materials were established early on by our client, with reclaimed oak and solid stainless steel being key. There’s something very compelling about the combination of mellow vintage oak kitchen units – with their knots and texture – contrasted with the cool and minimal steel surfaces.
The high vaulted ceiling, skylights and expansive picture windows demanded something very special. From the outset of the project we collectively had an industrial-meets-architectural kitchen design in mind. The form of the kitchen resembled an airy modern art gallery so we worked with that aesthetic for the stylish wood and stainless steel kitchen design.
For us, attention to detail is everything. Our skilled team created solid oak drawers with strong box joints. Open shelving gave our client the opportunity to showcase a few choice pieces but – in the main – the day-to-day kitchen items are concealed within expansive floor-to-ceiling cupboards.
While there were some challenges with the detailing of this stainless steel and wood kitchen, it did not deter our team from executing a one-off gem. It was an absolute pleasure, creating this bespoke kitchen in Surrey with such raw materials.
- Concealed storage
The vintage oak kitchen contains a vast amount of storage and pantry space, concealed behind substantial doors.
- The stainless steel worktop
The sheen on the solid stainless steel kitchen work surface bounces light around this airy high vaulted room.
- A floating table
We added a table that – from certain angles – appears to float in the space whilst having a flat plane of steel from others.
