Emerald Hill Kitchen - SBID International Design Awards 2015 - Finalist

Working with clients from the original Architects plans, German Kitchens established the layout of the Scullery and Main Kitchen based on a functional and practical galley style. This enabled them to design a structured and balanced look while still providing a visually appealing kitchen. They incorporated the required integrated appliances and pantries into both areas as well as providing the perfect working triangle with ample storage and working bench space. In the Main Kitchen using high gloss glass as the front material enabled the surroundings to be reflected and gave a greater feeling of space.
The very texturized Super White Quartzite offset the reflective, monochromatic glass and the island cabinetry was earthed using a solid reflective black. This created the core to the space and allowed the tall wall of white to go all the way up to the ceiling to make use of the ceiling height and the openness of the room. Black Miele appliances were specified along with the recessed cupboards above the cooking area to combine the tall wall to the island and to break up the height. LED lighting was built-in to the cupboards to illuminate the glass splashback and create a visual depth to the wall.
German Kitchens believe the best designs are balanced and provide an even distance between all facets, allowing the eye to focus on the central point and not be overwhelmed by the sheer size of the kitchen. Therefore the height and width of the kitchen is not as noticeable due to the perfect balance and clever use of colour. They specified the warm but soft tones of the Oak timber floor and used the Tom Dixon Copper pendants to add reflective and striking warmth to the kitchen. Phillipe Stark Ghost chairs finish off the design and functionality.
