This client was an expert property developer who was looking to renovate a very old farmhouse. The property had been stood vacant for years, prior to the developer taking on the renovation. The client wanted to keep the feeling of a traditional farmhouse whilst keeping the overall feel light, airy and modern. To aid the traditional feel, a false chimney breast was added to the design, this allowed us to work of a central focus point in the main open plan living space.
The client wanted to integrate a butler’s pantry into the design. The unit featured a large marble slab, a traditional way of keeping the contents cool inside the pantry. By incorporating a feature like this, the amount of storage in the kitchen is increased hugely and the feel of the traditional farmhouse is furthered. Mixing natural materials such as the solid timber doors and oak worktop on the large island finish off the design nicely.
