A contemporary handleless open plan kitchen

As part of a refurbishment of their 1930’s house, our clients wanted a bright, elegant contemporary kitchen to sit comfortably in a new modern rear extension. Older rooms in the property were also knocked through to create a large family room with living and dining areas and an entertaining space that includes a subterranean wine cellar and a bespoke cocktail cabinet.

The slab-style soft-close kitchen door fronts are finished in matt lacquer in Alpine White for tall cabinetry, and Dust Grey for door and deep drawer fronts in the three-metre island, all with matching-coloured carcases. We designed the island to feature a recessed mirrored plinth and with LED strip lights at the base to provide a floating effect to the island when illuminated at night. To combine the two cabinetry colours, the extra-long worktop is comprised of two pieces of bookmatched 20mm thick Dekton, a proprietary blend of natural quartz stone, porcelain and glass in Aura, a white surface with a feint grey vein running through it. The surface of the island is split into two zones for food preparation and cooking.

On the prep side is a one and half sized undermount sink and from the 1810 Company, together with an InSinkerator waste disposal unit and a Quooker Flex 3-in1 Boiling Water Tap. Installed within the island is a 60cm integrated dishwasher by Miele. On the cooking side is a flush-mounted 90cm Novy Panorama vented downdraft induction hob, which features a ventilation tower within the surface of the hob that rises up to 30cm to extract grease and cooking vapours at source, directly next to the pans. When cooking has ended, the tower retracts back into the surface to be completely concealed.

Within the run of tall cabinetry are storage cupboards, plus and integrated larder fridge and tall freezer, both by Siemens. Housed at the centre is a bank of ovens, all by Neff. These comprise two 60cm Slide&Hide pyrolytic ovens, one beneath 45cm a CircoTherm Steam Oven and the other beneath a 45cm Combination Microwave. At the end of the run is a large breakfast cupboard with pocket doors that open fully to reveal interior shelving with LED lighting and a stylish grey mirror back panel.
