The large area of this kitchen space brings together walnut and painted cabinetry, with stainless steel and mirror finish detailing, centred around the large lilac Aga.
The stepped recessed ceilings with concealed LED were designed around existing structural steelwork, following an extension to the room.
The large walnut island has 3 bowed ends with open bookcases and walnut breakfast bar top. A recessed Westin ceiling extractor sits above the cooking side of the island, with a larger bespoke extractor situated above the Aga. To the right, a painted appliance garage houses a double door larder and Gaggenau cooking appliances including a steam oven, micro combi oven and coffee machine.
Around the perimeter of the room, the cabinets are painted, and glazed wall cabinets feature sandblasted striped etching to the glass. The breakfasting area has fixed booth seating with heating below. The walnut table has black leathered granite inlay to the top to tie in with the bowed end of the island unit.
The rear wall of the kitchen houses Sub Zero cooling appliances with 2 large fridges including freezer drawers and a central wine store with fridge drawers below.
The 4 oven Aga is complemented by the Gaggenau domino hobs set into the island unit. Note the furniture fixed control knobs for the hobs, and the handle-less boarded door design of the cabinets. One wall-mounted television serves the kitchen and breakfasting area, whilst the other is viewed from the day room beyond.
The breakfasting area has leather bench seating, the table with twin semi-circular pedestals and shadow gap detail matches the island cabinetry. Note the Venetian style patio doors to the garden.
Fold away pocket doors reveal the Larder cupboard interior when open. A granite preparation work surface is included in the interior, used for coffee and toast preparation, with drawer storage below.
This drawer detail shows dedicated sections for the client’s cutlery. The leathered effect granite top and chunky end grain walnut chopping block can be appreciated from this angle.
Wander through to the day room in this house, and the furniture takes on a very different tone. Throughout, Italian pre-dyed Birds Eye Maple veneers have been used to give elegant silvery hues, highlighting the unusual grain of this timber on the floating cabinetry.
The striking grain of the pre-dyed veneer is evident in this floating console table in the corner of the room, the Bang and Olufsen speaker sits discreetly on the wall above.
The low level coffee table utilizes the same silver tinted veneer which contrasts with the central leather effect element.
The close up photography emphasises the subtle tones of the pre dyed veneers.
