Bespoke Luxury Family Kitchen, Surrey
This beautiful house has outstanding views from nearly every room. The old kitchen was redesigned to create a large, light family kitchen that flows perfectly in to a new orangery, overlooking the garden at one end, with a large walk in larder at the other.
The kitchen island in particular is a stand-out feature. Designed to be 3.5 metres long, with an unusual curved step between the surfaces it defines the space. It is also practical, incorporating storage areas and establishing a wonderful focus for gathering people. The brief was to create a kitchen that felt tactile and warm so lots of beautiful curves were introduced in wood and stone creating a feature of the giant chopping block. The larder was designed so that whoever is cooking can open the door and reach everything from one spot and it keeps the rest of the kitchen uncluttered and tranquil. The design also incorporated a boot room.
