A glamorous kitchen diner in a former Stately Home

Having been previously converted into apartments, the kitchen is located in a former drawing room in this stunning Georgian property. Our clients wanted a new contemporary state-of-the-art industrial style, reminiscent of a professional restaurant kitchen.

We designed and made all the tall brushed stainless steel kitchen cabinetry. This is used for storage and also houses a run of integrated cooling models including a wine climate cabinet together with a bank of ovens by Gaggenau. To maintain perspective with the very high ceiling, these are all three-metre-high structures and are top lit with LED lighting.

Between two large windows is a specially built tall steel storage cabinet with pocket doors at the central section that fold back into recesses to reveal a fully stocked bar and a concealed flatscreen TV.

At the centre of the room is a long steel island with a worktop in Concrete by Caesarstone. This is attached to L-shaped bench seating with stained ash pilasters for the dining area to complement a bespoke freestanding stained ash dining table. Facing the door is overhead cabinets to accommodate all glasses and stemware featuring four stained glass panels that we designed, which are inspired by the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany.
