Introducing Modern living in a Victorian refurbishment.

This project was part of the renovation of a captivating period property. The home is an elegant representation of architecture built for the gentry at the end of the Victorian era. Since the extension to the house has a contemporary character, this presented the challenge of designing a kitchen that would complement both the classic and modern styles.

To reflect the characteristics of the construction, we used Platinum from the Leicht Ceres-C Range accompanied by a hand finished concrete surface in Brasilia on the island from the Concrete-C range. A breakfast bar in Limes Oak with matching cladding on the front is reminiscent of a timeless fashion that draws everything together. The worktops are Dekton Keon, which radiates a naturalness that is appropriate for modern environments. Its broad colour range is airy, and its brightness enhances the natural light that is carried into the room via the large windows at the rear.

The majority of the appliances are from Siemens, underpinning a modern functionality and practicality. A larder refrigerator and freezer are integrated into the tall presses adjoining a glass-fronted wine fridge. Concealed by a pair of disappearing pocket doors, the double ovens with warming drawers are revealed for meal prep. The sink is equipped with a Quooker instant hot water tap. The Bora hob with built-in extraction eliminates the need for a noisy, bulky overhead extraction unit and facilitates the open shelving in a matching Platinum finish.
