Kitchen Studio Design Award
– Peoples Choice
It was a privilege to work with these clients and transform a challenging space into a functional and calm space to relax and enjoy.
An awkward angle under the stairs did not lend itself to symmetry, so seeing an opportunity, I picked out areas to replace the white with wood, creating Mondrian-esque geometric patterns which complemented my clients original brief to keep the colours mostly white, with soft surfaces and textures of wood evocative of Japanese interior design.
It was vitally important the space was accessible for older people and the chronically unwell. Every area had to be utilized ingeniously, combining clever, ample and easily accessible storage, with unique display areas to put my clients many treasures collected on their travels. The new design maximizes storage with the use of ergonomic solutions like the Blum Space Tower and Le Mans Corners, along with Tandem Box drawers to provide effortless access.
Bench space is now functional and allows multiple work stations to be used at one time, which is important in a home where more than one generation occupy.
The end result is truly stunning. The luxurious velvety countertop and cupboards, the wood accents, and the delicately incorporated lighting by inspired lighting designer Diego Saez Ibarzabal, have combined to make it such a peaceful, lovely space to be in.
