Hedgerley House

Metal-fabric, stone-clad kitchen within a Grade II listed extension.

This design was based on the clients’ love of vintage motorcycles and all things metal. This modern style kitchen was a polar contrast to the idyllic setting in which this Grade II listed property is located, yet the convenience of mod-cons, hidden storage solutions, and ease of cleaning were so key to the brief that a more traditional shaker kitchen one might expect here was dismissed by the client fairly early on.

The anthracite metal fabric frontages were inspired by the aged metal on the client’s 1920’s Harley Davison and sit in contrast to the striking Calacatta marble quartz with running veins, designed to bring some feeling of earthiness and the clients’ love of the garden into play. Iron Steel Neolith chunky mitred worktops with a breakfast bar chopping in at each end and the island sink all help mimic the internal and external staggered levels of the house, being that the property itself is carved into a plot formed by sloping landscapes of various patio and deck levels.

Extra top-box storage space across the full length of the kitchen with a bespoke library ladder system was also added to the design to offer easier access into the higher levels of the kitchen as well as accentuate the height of the new room. The black rails and ironmongery a final cherry on the top to the embracing of more featured metal!

We love the kitchen, everyone who walks into it just goes WOW!!!! It really is beautiful and a joy to use. Kevin was a pleasure to work with, he combines knowledge and creativity with great client service.
