Park Gate

This split height kitchen & utility for Park Gate was designed to accommodate everyone in the household. The client was after a visually uncluttered handless kitchen for their new extension, that would be a special space they could entertain in whilst simultaneously enjoying cooking in.

With that in mind we set the stage backdrop by entertirely covering the back wall of the kitchen with the functional elements and made the island into the stage.

The carcasses & drawers are made from light grey phenolic coated birch ply with a white stained edge, these are incredibly durable & are a nice surprise when opening the drawers and doors.

The doors & drawer fronts are thermally modified ash lipped and in house laminated with a satin grey Abet laminate. The surface of these fronts is easy to clean and will remain timeless.

All the drawers run on tip-on blumotion blum runners allowing them to be touch to open whilst remaining soft close. To ensure handleless operation all the doors are push to open, along with both bins.

The worktop was designed uniquely for this kitchen and was made in house. The construction of which is two layers of Hi-Macs solid surface laminate with a thermally modified ash core. This detail runs through the entire design from the steps in the worktop all the way through to a matching thinner version for the window sill & the countertop in the utility.

We wrapped the seating area of island in thermally modified ash as it is an incredibly tactile surface to sit around. At the other end of the island is a dedicated lowered mixing area with a reclaimed teak worktop for the sake of functionality.

At the other end, opposite the main cooking area is the utilitarian side of the space. This houses the main bin, dishwasher & washing up sink. At the far end is the coffee making area which is made to match the timbers used on the island.

The utility room was designed and built to the same specification as the kitchen but we have reintroduced the @llgood D-Line handles from the clients pervious kitchen as a layer of history.
