A usable and busy family/business kitchen with character was the brief. The result is just that but with more character than any working kitchen could boast. Problem areas such as the vast array of plumbing that needed to be boxed in were turned in to a positive and dramatic feature wall of built in shelves. A vintage plan chest was re purposed into a central island, topped with granite and a power source installed to allow for the families cake and pastry making passion whilst still allowing loads of storage. A built in pantry was commissioned with loads of storage for the necessary catering sized boxes.
