The customers were extending their property to enable them to create a large open plan cooking, living & dining area centred around a large island that could make the most of their views out into the open countryside through bi-folding doors.
New stud walls were fabricated & internal doors into other rooms in the house were re-arranged to house the oven, combination oven & warming draw. The full height fridge & freezer are located either side of an integral pantry to keep all the family’s cooking ingredients in one area. The larder units were set back slightly to mirror the feeling of them being ‘sunk’ into the wall, small LED lights were recessed into the bulk head to give ambient yet useful lighting.
The use of the stud wall to house the oven, combination oven & warming draw create a ‘sunk in’ effect, this gives the illusion the of the appliances floating & adds real interest to the design.
