Updating a period English house for your family whilst retaining the building’s architectural integrity requires a sensitive, multi-disciplined team, many of whom are listed building specialists. The services we deploy vary depending on your project.
Unlike bespoke joinery companies we are designers and makers offering a ‘one-stop-shop’: we take on full responsibility from creative design to production to installation.
We liaise with architects, builders and interior designers, we specify appliances and provide technical oversight and project management.
Typically clients discover Artichoke in their search for an elegant, beautifully made kitchen and, having found us, decide to use us in other areas of their home.
In any room of a house – or through an entire house – our creative process shapes beautiful period houses into wonderful homes.
First we learn about you, your family and the way you live in a house together. We couple this insight to our deep knowledge of bespoke architectural joinery to make practical, exquisitely detailed homes that are beloved of families.
As listed building specialists we are expert in planning and making kitchens and fitted furniture that work beautifully for modern family life, but never compromise the architectural integrity of a home. Understanding the rhythm and requirements of family life allows us to carry out the interior architecture and space planning that is the blueprint for harmonious living..
Architectural joinery – the use of wood to shape the character and function of a room – has for centuries been the best way of making houses liveable, singular and charming. In any room, in any house it is the heart of our work.
From technical performance to sensory experience, careful, creative materials specification and beautifully considered interior design turn perfectly planned spaces into delightful stages for family life to play out on.
No two families are the same, nor are any two rooms. Our cabinet making responds precisely to the shape and nature of your family, your life together and your house.
As listed building specialists and a celebrated bespoke joinery company we use traditional methods to build cabinets that will last for generations.
Through period finishing we add long-lived depth, authenticity and warmth to rooms and houses.
To work as a listed building specialist is to celebrate the quirks and vagaries of period houses. To be a bespoke joinery expert is to work with those singularities, not against them.
Installation can therefore be as complex a task as making – and just as vital to the success of a project.
Our forensic, relentless quality control makes our work robust enough for family life – and enduring enough to become part of England’s future heritage.
