De­lib­er­ately con­trast­ing the an­cient struc­ture of this rare ‘Great Barn’ This mod­ern kitchen uti­lizes the spa­cious in­te­rior and works in har­mony with it. A se­ries of shaped is­lands broadly in a horse­shoe shape sit out in the cen­tre of the room al­low­ing the glo­ri­ous Nor­folk Red brick walls to de­scribe the mag­nif­i­cence of this room.

The back wall has a com­plete façade of cab­i­nets con­ceal­ing ded­i­cated stor­age and func­tion­al­ity with Cof­fee ma­chines and steam ovens. A Large SubZero Fridge, Freezer and wine cabi­net punc­ture this el­e­va­tion with crisp stain­less steel. The whole el­e­va­tion is framed with a deep Oak coam­ing. This forms a back­drop to the ta­ble and origami like white din­ing chairs.

The re­main­der of the kitchen is de­signed around a very func­tional for­mat with cook­ing and wash­ing to­gether and a sep­a­rate bar-ta­ble is­land mak­ing this space ex­cep­tion­ally so­cial.

Work­tops and cabi­net colours were cho­sen to com­pli­ment the fab­ric and tex­ture of the Barn. The Aga colour our cus­tomer chose con­trasts and sharp­ens the de­sign.

Stun­ning ‘African Fu­sion’ gran­ite was se­lected. This is a dark mysterious stone with strik­ing quartzite in­tru­sions form­ing lines and pat­terns across its sur­face. This is a very spe­cial stone as the sur­face has a ‘leathered’ tex­ture as if worn smooth in a river bed with slightly un­du­lat­ing fea­tures across its sur­face. Deeply tac­tile. Ev­ery­one loves it.
