It was clear when discussing the project with the client that she was passionate about including the outside area when designing the internal space. The decision was made to remove the majority of the back wall to the kitchen to showcase their fabulous garden and increase the natural light.
The space needed to be versatile with a TV zone, drinks area, practical utility space and a social and comfortable island all on the clients wish list. Clever solutions such as a tandem larder unit, le-mans corner mechanism and sliding pocket door to the utility helped to optimise storage without compromised accessibility.
The walkway through to the adjacent snug was widened to create an attractive drinks area with glass fronted wall units and antique mirror splashback to brightened up the space and create a more decorative zone, ideal for entertaining, so that guest help themselves without entering the working area of the kitchen.
