Based on honest utilitarian English joinery which dates back to the 18th Century our kitchens are designed to meet the needs of modern day living whilst complementing and enhancing the architecture of the building.
Made to the highest quality by expert joiners, our bespoke cabinets feature soft close dovetailed drawers on old fashioned wooden runners. We source vintage brass handles and hardware to ensure each kitchen is unique.
In Kensington we opened up the external wall to create a long line of windows opening out onto the garden directly above the work surface. Standing at the central sink with the windows open, breathing in the aromatic herbs in the window boxes outside allows you to enjoy the garden even when you’re inside. The modern Aga creates a natural focal point and adds a sense of warmth and homeliness which everyone gravitates to.
In Hampshire the 1970s orange pine kitchen was ripped out leaving just the original butter cream Aga and original floor boards. The new integrated kitchen is designed to feel as if it has always been there – the cupboard doors feature arched panels which echo the curved panels on the historic building’s internal doors and arched windows.
A large dresser houses the owner’s Asiatic Pheasant tableware, whilst two fridges, a double larder, back up cooker and electric hob, an oversized butler sink and a generous expanse of soft grey granite work surface provides enough space for all the food preparation (and washing up) required in a large family home. The walls were painted a soft grey to match the original flaking paint on the old doors of the flint stone outbuildings in the grounds and the units painted a warm cream to match the original Aga and complement the warm sand stone of the main house.
