A natural kitchen with organic curved forms

We were commissioned to create a serene, natural and contemporary kitchen in this new-build house.

The building had a creative angular layout, so our clients were keen to introduce organic curved forms as a natural antithesis to the strong geometry of the architecture.

In such a beautifully open space, we knew we had to master some clandestine storage and an effective layout to enable a good flow around the space.

Curved cabinetry guides you

Our brief was to design a kitchen that would perfectly integrate with the dining and lounge area, but we also needed to incorporate some hallway storage.

The shape of the large, waved sculptural cabinet, acts not only as subtle device to guide you around the space more effectively, but also houses hallway storage. This leads on to a wine cooler and glassware area, and to the fridge in the centre of the kitchen.

The hand-height wave motif in pippy brown oak has a playful, tactile quality.

The perfect alchemy of oak and stone

We partnered the reclaimed Cotswold stone walls with a strong Crown English oak.  This traditional material suggests a real sense of quality and craftsmanship, but with every surface curved, we were able to create a synergy between old and new styles.

Let the conversation flow

We firmly believe that cooking should be a sociable act. With the range cooker set into the island, you can prep and cook while enjoying the best position of the kitchen, and guests have their own bar to sit at and chat.

The less glamorous job of dishwashing is kept further out of sight behind the island, with a full-height curved larder is at the end.
