When I first visited the property it was semi-derelict having been left empty and unused for many years before the clients purchased it. I was very quickly inspired by the clients vision for the conversion from an ancient barn to a stylish contemporary home. They walked me through the space and describing some of their ideas of how they wanted to fuse modern materials such as glass and steel with the rustic and traditional elements of the barn such as the substantial oak beams and exposed brickwork.
I designed the kitchen using dark concrete textured units from LEICHT. I felt these would complement the modern / industrial materials that were to be used elsewhere and the dark finish was intended to accentuate the original features by creating depth and contrast. The main work surfaces are 20mm quartz in an Oyster finish that blends beautifully with the natural stone floors that run throughout the main living area.
There was an original low level brick wall that the heritage officer wanted to remain so the furniture in this section was raised up to leave the wall exposed without reducing the space available for the kitchen. Lights were fitted to the underside of the furniture to highlight this original feature.
The centre piece of the design is the “floating” section that is suspended between 2 of the original oak posts and runs into an oak bar section and houses a state of the art self-venting induction hob set in a solid stainless steel worktop with deep pull-out drawers throughout.
" The quality of the product was amazing along with the service. If your looking for a kitchen of distinction then give them a call."
