Mayfair Penthouse


Open plan opulence in London W1

We were appointed to design this open plan kitchen in a deluxe duplex apartment in a Listed Victorian property in Mayfair. While the kitchen space was limited, the specification was to be of the highest order featuring fine textured materials and Gaggenau appliances throughout.

The bespoke cabinetry is finished in book-matched Fiddleback Sycamore veneer with a grey stain which contains a shimmering silver sheen. The contrasting neutrals are all brought together by the Nero Marquina Marble which features a pale vein throughout the dark stone. This is used as the worksurface and also for the peninsula that separates the kitchen and living space, whilst affording views from either aspect.

There is a food preparation area with an induction hob and downdraft extractor. A Kohler sink and Quooker Flex 3-in-1 Boiling Water Tap are also included in the opposite wet area. The floor to ceiling tall cabinetry houses two Gaggenau ovens and a warming drawer and a fridge freezer is positioned along this run.

Facing the kitchen is informal seating next to a wine conditioning unit, perfect for entertaining. To add a dynamic contrast to the linear uniformity of this kitchen, three different shaped pendant lights are installed above the peninsula.
