…celebrate their 100th Anniversary and select one of our latest kitchen projects designed by our in house designer, Bill McIntosh, to feature inside this month’s Homes and Interiors, Scotland.
This really is a stunning contemporary interior within an extremely old building, which in parts, dates from 1650.
The owners have travelled extensively visiting buildings with an eye on the ‘old meets new’ concept and love watching Grand Designs.
After a few meetings with Bill they felt he had the perfect kitchen design for them which sympathetically integrated with their 17century barn.
Bill designed a handleless Poggenpohl kitchen and continued this with the Gaggenau handleless 400 series of integrated ovens.
The seamless worktop included a flush flexizone induction hob and downdraft extraction which was then set into Caesarstone and for more textural interest he incorporated heart ash wood in the seated area on the island.
All in all this created a simple pared back room allowing the very old beams to stand out.
Home and Interiors, Scotland magazine appreciated the subtleness of its design and simple clean lines, they commented on the recessed and drop lighting and bare walls allowing the light to bounce around the room, as the interiors guide so eloquently said
‘…compensating for the limited daylight from the disproportionately small windows, that are a reminder of the building’s past.’
A past that spans over 300 years. A wonderful example of old meets new.
“We don’t simply design kitchens. We remain curious. We take a critical look at our own ideas and plans and constantly improve what is already good. This is our strive for perfection. It not only pleases us but delights and surprises our clients”.
