Holton StreetContemporary Kitchen, London

Set within the Carlton Square Conservation Area in East London, this two-storey end of terrace period property suffered from a lack of natural light, low ceiling heights and a disconnection to the garden at the rear.

The clients preference for an industrial aesthetic along with an assortment of antique fixtures and fittings acquired over many years were an integral factor whilst forming the brief. Steel windows and polished concrete feature heavily, allowing the enlarged living area to be visually connected to the garden with internal floor finishes continuing externally. Floor to ceiling glazing combined with large skylights help define areas for cooking, eating and reading whilst maintaining a flexible open plan space.

This simple yet detailed project located within a prominent Conservation Area required a considered design approach, with a reduced palette of materials carefully selected in response to the existing building and it’s context.

“One of the planning conditions was we had to use London Stock brick on the outer wall,” says Davies. “We thought it would be good to continue that inside. The exposed brick is a really nice feature and works well with the concrete.” It also helps to emphasise that inside-outside connection and makes the garden wall seem to come into the house.What do you like about this kitchen?
