The Woodland House

The Brief

The kitchen was part of a full house renovation and relocated form another area of the home for the for the views across the beautiful landscape and woodland beyond. The kitchen was home to cookery author and young family so needed to high degree of functionality as well as beauty.

Elements

The large butler sink is centred on the window offering views to the garden beyond with a serving area to the right. We created a new inglenook to house the Aga with a shaped mantle to complement the other original fireplaces withing the house. In keeping with the Middleton furniture-based approach the freestanding pantry cupboard is within easy reach of the island and counter tops. We recessed the fridge freezer and breakfast cupboard into the wall to take some of the visual weight and streamline flow into the adjacent sitting and dining area.

To reflect some of the client’s antique pieces and the historic nature of the home the dresser was crafted in Oak and built into the wall behind to cleverly integrated a wine fridge within the price. Achieving the correct scale for the island was critical in this relatively narrow room to provide good storage through lots of drawers and generous counter tops space. Softer elements such as the bookcase and stool pocket at either end bring interest to the piece. All befitting of our ethos to create kitchens that look as though they have always been there.
