Clapham Common Family Kitchen

This 1930s house is home to two writers and their family. Yard Architects reworked the space to create rooms for writing and a beautiful, open kitchen, closely connected to the garden. The myriad of different views brings a sense of playfulness to the space and also makes it feel social and welcoming, a visible hub of the house.  The cooking area of the kitchen is Atlantic Blue cabinetry with Half Moon White accents and terrazzo worktops by Diespeker.  Yard Architects chose a punchy colour for the support structures with the column and beam painted in Farrow & Ball’s Arsenic green. The kitchen island’s design includes a Bora hob and a bookshelf that softens the transition with the rest of the room. Opposite, we designed an Elm crockery cupboard and larder with Ruskin Blossom interior with the wood’s grain bringing a soft warmth and texture to this corner of the room.
