IT’S al­ways a good day at the of­fice for in­te­rior de­sign­ers and builders when clients and home­own­ers are over the moon with their ser­vices.

But a Welsh in­te­rior de­sign and build­ing firm will be on cloud nine today after pick­ing up a na­tional award yes­ter­day for its de­signer kitchen with a run­way break­fast bar over­look­ing Pe­narth Ma­rina.

Project One, based in Pe­narth, were awarded the top in­dus­try award at the Master Builder Awards 2017 at a cer­e­mony in London yes­ter­day for its work on a kitchen ren­o­va­tion.

Nick Knowles, TV presenter and build­ing en­thu­si­ast, handed the best kitchen or bath­room award to the com­pany at The Fed­er­a­tion of Master Builders (FMB) event.

The award was for its work on a lux­u­ri­ous town­house over­look­ing Pe­narth Ma­rina.

“The in­stal­la­tion works bril­liantly, through a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent de­sign el­e­ments, to give a sense of flow and move­ment, re­flect­ing the ebb and flow of the har­bour”, said Brian Berry, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the FMB.

“This is en­hanced by the seven­zone light­ing sys­tem which is an in­no­va­tive way of cre­at­ing sep­a­rate spa­ces to suit dif­fer­ent moods.”

Project One de­signed and in­stalled a con­tem­po­rary and sleek life­style kitchen, com­plete with a show-stop­ping run­way break­fast bar, de­signed to draw the eye to­wards the fan­tas­tic view of the har­bour. Thrilled with their kitchen, clients Si­mon and Al­lun ex­plained that Project One turned the ini­tial brief on its head.

The main rea­son for the re­design was so that they could make the most of the beau­ti­ful har­bour view.

In­stead of car­ry­ing out an at­tic bed­room con­ver­sion as orig­i­nally planned, Project One rec­om­mended com­pletely mod­i­fy­ing the mid­dle floor, mov­ing the kitchen away from the street side of the build­ing and tak­ing down all the in­ter­con­nect­ing walls to max­imise light and cre­ate more space.

It has given Si­mon and Al­lun a greater op­por­tu­nity to en­joy the view in the room they spend most of their time in.

The Master Builder Awards, now in its 13th year, is a na­tion­wide search by the FMB to find the best builders in Bri­tain, tak­ing into ac­count builders’ tech­ni­cal abil­ity to­gether with their cus­tomer ser­vice skills.
