From the outset it was clear that this kitchen was going to be a bit different. Our thespian client wanted to re-create the slightly off-beat & interesting vibe of a South London deli. So we designed an honest & graphic, hand-made birch ply kitchen, with wall-box shelving for openly displaying not only kitchen goods, but also this family's personality. Achieving a comfortable & worn-in look was key - we fell in love with the idea of using patinated materials & vintage finishes to juxtapose against the clean & contemporary lines of the graphic kitchen cabinetry. Even the floors were deliberately painted with an earthy, red undercoat which will, in time, reveal itself beneath the grey topcoat, to create that lived-in & authentic feel our client was so keen to achieve.
