Modern meets Edwardian
The starting point for this project was a stunning Edwardian family home; the finished result is anything but old-fashioned. The ground floor extension on the house provided lots of natural light, allowing the use of a dark colour on the island to dramatic effect. This contrasts with the paler colour used on the cupboards around the walls. The carcasses are made from engineered birch ply, with solid maple drawer boxes and custom-made cutlery dividers. 60mm Corian worktops lend a modern feel to this kitchen, along with Miele appliances and a down-draught extractor which hides away when not in use. A secret door, which you could be forgiven for thinking opens into a larder cupboard, actually provides access to a utility room.
