An L-shaped room
This design is about sight lines and views. It enables eye contact between people in the room wherever they are. The complex floor plan needed creative thinking to turn it into a comfortable kitchen, its central zone a room made in the join between two terraced houses. With the most inviting area the light-filled conservatory at one end, our new central island works as an axis bringing the main parts of the space together.
We turned a corridor into a fun place to cook by building the culinary zone around two appliance garages housing Thermomix, Magimix, Kenwood, coffee and ice cream machines. These practical housing units - made with an aluminium tambour - can be opened for not-particularly-tidy cooking and closed away after use. The confined space is brightened by translucent back-lit Corian.
