Shortlisted: Kitchen Design Over £100,000 Award

The International Design & Architecture Awards 2024

Kitchens by Holloway presents a stunning showcase with their Broseley range of cabinets in this kitchen, boasting ink blue cabinetry accented by solid brass edging details and recessed handles. Nestled amidst serene greenery in a secluded gated community within Esher, the property sets the stage for a culinary haven tailored to the needs of energetic clients who delight in hosting lavish dinner parties. The brief was to craft a high-functioning kitchen that seamlessly integrates into the minimalist architecture of their new home, positioned as the centrepiece of the ground floor to make a striking initial impression.

Sited within the main open-plan entertaining space, flanked by a spacious dining area and living room, the kitchen is tasked with blending functionality with socialization. The vision was to create a space where guests and family can mingle effortlessly while remaining connected to the cooking hub. This necessitates a delicate balance between retaining an airy, open feel and infusing the kitchen with a cosy, welcoming atmosphere for daily use. The angular dimensions of the room pose a unique challenge, requiring a cohesive scheme to harmonize the kitchen, living, and dining spaces seamlessly.

Meeting the clients’ discerning tastes, a selection of high-end appliances from Miele, Gaggenau, and BORA is seamlessly integrated to ensure practicality without compromising on aesthetics. Natural materials such as oak frames and unlacquered brass accents soften the bold linear appearance, while Caesarstone and Nero Assoluto Granite countertops infuse character and warmth, mirroring the property’s architectural elements.

The integration of the kitchen into the wider environment is achieved through meticulous attention to detail. The symmetrical elevation of cabinets creates a striking focal point, while the layout of the island accentuates the connection between the kitchen, dining, and living spaces. Display cabinets strategically positioned against the walls visually unite the three spaces, maintaining flow and cohesion throughout.

Specialist artisan skills are showcased in the meticulous craftsmanship of hand-inlayed solid brass T-sections and recessed brass handles, meticulously brushed and patinated to perfection. This attention to detail produces a truly unique kitchen design, where form meets function seamlessly, and durability is never compromised.

In conclusion, Kitchens by Holloway’s design philosophy epitomizes the perfect blend of functionality, aesthetics, and craftsmanship. This kitchen stands as a testament to their dedication to excellence and innovation in kitchen design, promising a culinary haven that exceeds expectations and leaves a lasting impression.
