Our clients’ principal brief was to design a centrepiece kitchen for their Victorian Gothic house in Wandsworth. The project was part of a comprehensive refurbishment of the property in which the lower ground floor was remodelled to include the kitchen, dining area and utility room. The kitchen itself is an object lesson in understated luxury: the island is topped with eye-catching Arabescato marble with an integrated hob that features the first UK installation of the Blanco by Gutmann Mesa downdraft extractor. Elsewhere in the kitchen are a floating sink elevation and full-height appliance and storage wall featuring Corian-clad cabinetry and solid Oak detailing, a design scheme that is carried through to the adjoining utility room. We also worked closely with the clients to design a custom dining table in Walnut and Corian and a pair of classically styled occasional tables.
Additional details include: Oak-veneered internals, customised knife block, cutlery and plate dividers, integrated LED under lighting, pantry and pull out larder, bespoke stainless steel doors for fridge-freezer unit, specially-fabricated Corian storage compartments to the inside of full-height Corian doors.

“We really enjoyed working with Jack Trench on the design of our kitchen, no detail was too small during the design process even down to hand-selecting the marble for our island. The installation process was extremely well managed and the quality and craftsmanship of our finished kitchen is superb”
