The Brief

Our local clients requested we design a modern contemporary scheme for their new open-plan kitchen extension, and they immediately loved the crisp clean lines of the Biography handleless range.  The brief also required we provided ample storage, combined with plenty of cooling and cooking capacity to cope with entertaining large gatherings of friends and family.

A large multi-functional island including an induction hob, possibly the sink, some seating and plenty of drawer storage. Our customers were anticipating spending a lot more time in their fabulous new kitchen/dining space and they were happy to invest in a contemporary design, quality appliances, clever storage and cabinetry along with work surfaces that would meet all of their requirements.

Designer's Tips

The key to large open-plan spaces is getting the ergonomics right, and positioning the three main zones – refrigeration, sink and ovens all within a reasonable working distance of each other to improve efficiency and comfort. This project also had high ceilings so the mixed finished height tall housings and wall units added visual interest to the overall scheme.   

The striking granite is 'book matched' on the island end panels achieving a very appealing affect, and the mixed island worktops mirrors the furniture achieving harmony.
