The property for this project was a beautiful farmhouse set in 22 acres of farmland including 3 acres of residential curtilage. The client brief was to open 4 seperate rooms into one large kitchen space.
The task was to remove 4 x internal supporting walls to make one large room. With provision to re-route the soil pipe which ran down the central supporting column.
As the floors were not level to each other a heavy screed was applied to the whole room to give a level pad.
The floor area was then fully tiled.
When the kitchen was installed we had unusual height issues to consider. If you look at the fridge image and the larder image at the opposite end of the room you can see how close to the steel beams the kitchen units are.
Unless luck is on your side, this attention to sizing can only be provided through bespoke manufacture. In this instance we used Störmer Küchen for flexibility in a traditional design with modern and up to the minute internal detail.
The construction work took 5 weeks in total to a painted and tiled finish with a further 2 weeks to install the kitchen & granite.
Working with the clients we knew we had to create a unique and individual design. One which was truly bespoke with every aspect built perfectly to suit their specific needs. This kitchen was to play more than just its typical role in day to day life and we had to develop something special.
Straight away we knew that removing the four walls would create a fantastic space to work with. We focused on creating specific zones for an efficient and functional kitchen, living and working space.
The Rangemaster Induction cooker defines the cooking area and situating it on the island creates that visual anchor and central role for the client. With the sink and fridge freezer located close-by, the huge space doesn't need to create excess 'leg work' even when cooking a simple meal.
