sustainable single storey newbuild


A beautiful solid oak kitchen island and engineered oak wall panelling sit alongside Aluminium cabinetry for a timeless, natural kitchen.

the brief:

This single storey newbuild is discreetly nestled in the Devon countryside and split over three levels to complement its natural surroundings. Our clients wanted a kitchen built to the highest standards and a kitchen that would feel at home against the stunning Dartmoor backdrop.

the design:

Mention an oak kitchen and you’ll be forgiven for thinking of shiny, honey-toned kitchens of the 1980s and 90s – but this kitchen will make you think again! Here responsibly sourced solid oak sits alongside aluminium cabinetry to create a timeless, nature-inspired kitchen. The solid oak kitchen island overlooks the Tors of North Dartmoor and is finished with a natural aluminium plinth.

Engineered oak wall panelling softens the kitchen space and contrasts beautifully with the anodised aluminium units. Anodised aluminium is a premium finish with a selection of colours thanks to a clever electrochemical process that transforms the metal’s surface. Dark grey anodised aluminium was chosen for this kitchen as it flows with the building’s sliding doors and external facias.

Having visited numerous top quality kitchen showrooms I was immediately struck by how personal the staff were at Sapphire Spaces. They listened very carefully to my wish list and expectations. I was then introduced to Valerie, my own designer and the relationship grew from there. Together we spent many hours refining and honing the final details. Nothing was too much trouble. Even the most exacting customers could not fail to be impressed by the dedication to achieve the perfect outcome. Installation of the kitchen by their delightful team went exactly to plan, with minimal disruption. The kitchen fulfilled all our expectations and more. It is both beautiful and practical and totally fits into our very high quality new build. We expect to be happy for many years to come. And Valerie? She has become a life-long friend!
