When Chris was asked to tender for the kitchen in this Grade 2 listed building he knew he had a challenge on his hands.
The kitchen had already been knocked through into an adjacent room and steel props were supporting the ceiling beams in several places. Some of the walls were a massive 120mm out of plumb.
The kitchen design had to absorb these issues to comply with the listing.
Following several meetings with the client, Chris came up with a successful design which incorporated curved larders and classic hand-painted cabinetry.
Christopher Philips worked closely with the main contractor to resolve various problems regarding the installation of a new Aga and internal joinery elements. The adjoining utility room was fitted with the same style of cabinetry as the main kitchen – including special drying and storage space for wellies!
The walls were a traditional breathable plaster finish and our decorators worked closely with the architect to ensure their integrity. The final kitchen incorporated a Miele wine cooler in the island unit.
Special issues: Some eleventh hour changes to the design were handled professionally and quickly by the team at the workshops.
