project

A waterside luxury kitchen designed for both sociable home cooks and professional chefs.

the brief:

Our clients love entertaining, often cooking themselves but sometimes employing a professional chef for larger parties and get togethers. The kitchen design needs to suit everyday family life but also be well equipped for outside caterers.

the design:

This beautiful Torquay home enjoys panoramic coastal views. We used a simple palette of alpine white with textured black oak that wouldn’t detract from the outlook. Tall units span the entire width of the room and include clever foldaway pocket doors that hide work areas and appliances.

An impressive 4.5m kitchen island takes advantage of the views and is raised on legs to keep an open feel. To balance proportion we commissioned a 3m long bespoke extractor to sit asymmetrically above the island. The extractor uses an external motor so guests can enjoy party banter without competing with extraction noise.

Our clients invested in state-of-the-art Gaggenau appliances including several wine cabinets, each one dedicated to a particular colour of wine. The list of appliances also includes a freezer with an easily accessible ice-maker. To complete this party kitchen we also included a separate drinks area with boiling water tap and fridge drawer for milk storage. The drinks station is positioned at one end of the kitchen so drinks can be made without disturbing the chef.

Simple, Danish dining furniture by Carl Hansen & Son has been chosen for the informal eating area. A separate dining area, used for larger dinner parties, features elegant Italian dining furniture. Both the circular dining table and comfy dining chairs with armrests are from the Maxalto range by B&B Italia.
