New England inspired Kitchen
19th Century House | London

The exterior of this London home resembles an 18th century Amsterdam merchant’s house. Its interior is in the Arts and Crafts tradition.

The room needed to honour the heritage of their house, and offer the owners a pocket of peace in the midst of frantic lives.

Space Planning & Architectural Challenges

The interior architecture of the house is remarkable. Our plan does as little as possible to interfere with it, but enough to accentuate its features: tall, deep windows and a high, beamed ceiling.

The detail of the background kitchen furniture nods to the traditional east coast U.S styles which are comfortably familiar to the owner.

The pot rack was handmade in New York - a reference to the owner’s home country

What We Achieved for Our Clients

In keeping with the influence at large in the house, a Dutch styled court cupboard flanks one wall which contains an integrated cook’s fridge.

The background furniture and main work surface are plain and functional and do nothing to interfere with shape and mood of the room.

The furniture mouldings were kept deliberately simple

Design Features

The antiqued zinc hood accentuates the ceiling height without interfering with the original beamed ceiling.

The pantry is located in a separate room at the back of the kitchen and features a pair of large Sub Zero fridges for food and wine storage.  These are easily accessible from both the kitchen and the large garden.
