1st Place Contemporary Award KDC 2010-12
The challenge: a kitchen designed for a demanding host with a busy lifestyle, that had to fit the atmosphere of the home.
“I started with an empty space, which featured prominent old wooden beams. That was the stage for what had to be a semi-professional kitchen; the client’s requirements with respect to the appliances were very clear. They had to be as professional as possible. This is why the Wolf range was selected, for it’s iconic red controls and the heavy cast iron grates. The kitchen measurements are based on the dimensions of the range, hence the shape of the worktop’s edge. The warming drawer dictated the size of the drawers in the island, and led to our choice for using matte marble. Matte marble is easily cut in different thicknesses and perfect to create a uniform and robust look between the warming drawer and furniture fronts. The Sub-Zero refrigerators finish the semi-professional atmosphere, thanks to their stainless steel counterpoint to the rough materials. I searched for contrasting materials on purpose, making sure they share the same colour palette. The result is this kitchen, a sleek industrial look with plenty of light and spaciousness.”
