Our clients an enormous space where they wanted to incorporate a living and dining space, as well as a play area for the grandchildren with lovely views of the garden. They were very keen on having a double island; one where they could cook and prepare and another that was more for socialising. They also wanted us to incorporate the original, oak floor into the design. The homeowner was a former kitchen designer, so had a very strong vision of what she did and didn’t like. The kitchen has a very industrial, open-plan bistro feel. It has a classic front-way construction, but styled in a contemporary way. In terms of storage, there's a big walk-in larder, along with a pull-out larder for necessities. There are also big drawers under the oven, with big wide drawers adjacent to the dishwasher for cutlery and crockery. We didn't really have any obstacles to overcome as we had a really tight brief. We had to work with some height restrictions as the client wanted everything in easy reach, but really everything was ironed out in the design process. Installation took two and a half weeks. Design process was 2-3 months. This beautiful home is located in Esher, south west London and it's a big detached property with vast grounds.
