Nunhead Village Kitchen
This Victorian terrace in South East London is home to a professional foodie couple and their young children. Architects Stefan Shaw Studio designed a new side and rear extension for the house to create a light and bright family friendly kitchen. The space feels layered with colour and texture thanks to the bold combination of green Fenix laminate, which has a tactile, soft touch; the worktops are terrazzo from Diespeker and the island is natural cork that has been mixed with recycled rubber. Given their passion for creating delicious food, it is no surprise that this kitchen includes some serious cooking kit – a Bora Professional 3 hob which includes both induction and gas rings with integrated extraction and there are electric and steam Fisher and Paykel ovens.

This house has panoramic views over Cornwall’s beautiful north coast, the breathtaking surroundings have inspired the interiors with a palette of earthy colours and natural materials. Our client worked with interior designers Studio Far West and Lomax & Chi to create their dream beach house retreat. Built five years ago, this house has quirky features with the internal architecture ensuring life revolves around the kitchen. The soothing sage green cabinetry is punctuated with brass backed recessed handles and over time these will develop a rich patina. The glamourous island worktop is a stunning granite called Marinace Verde. This is a place to escape city living – a home from home – which works for all seasons. The open plan kitchen living room, includes a cosy fireplace for those wintry evenings. There is an intentionally retro feel to the design, with opaline pendants over the island and mid-century furniture elsewhere.

Hither Green Family Kitchen
This kitchen is a glorious cohesive juxtaposition of delicate and industrial finishes, with a concrete floor and stainless steel worktop by Cavendish Equipment, mixing with soft matt cabinetry and rich glazed tiles; and colour too is used to create a contrast with different shades of pink and green popping against each other. Set in a Victorian house in South East London, our clients are keen cooks so a larder with easily accessible ingredients was amongst their top non-negotiables and remains a favourite element of the new kitchen. Elsewhere, we incorporated Spoke shelves above the sink to display a much loved ceramics collection. To keep the layout of the room dynamic, with the ability to move furniture around, our clients chose to have a vintage table rather than an island. A sofa adds a cosiness and is the perfect spot for their teenage children to relax with the dogs.

Crystal Palace Location House Kitchen
This is the home of interior and graphic designer Celine Da Silva, who upon the purchase of an Art Deco house in South East London, took on renovating her own home with the intention of creating a location house. Celine cleverly created a more practical and beautiful kitchen without increasing the footprint by tweaking the internal walls. Our design includes a narrow island that suits the space, in Celine’s words you had to ‘shimmy around’ the previous one and the bookshelf on the end viewed from the living room, which softens the transitions between the spaces. The cabinetry is London Plane and Bonnington Green and Celine explains why she opted for this rich hue having played with Pluck samples: ‘I loved how it changed throughout the day. It looked almost black at certain times, which made me feel like I was getting two colours at once.’
