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.
