An opened kitchen of wide dimensions in which textures and materials had to combine within lacquered storages areas, next to an island coated with a smooth Fenix nanolaminated surface.
The personalization of finishes (two special lacquers, Fenix, porcelain tiles, natural oak wood, details in brass and marble) made this kitchen a challenge as soon as we started with the first moodboard. The presence of an imposing raw pillar complicated the optimization of the space distribution, which had to incorporate open spaces, an integrated wine cellar and a large storage capacity.
This family with two small children loves to cook, so large working surfaces and a fluid circulation were highly required, as well as a bar area large enough for four stools.
In order to integrate all the finishes as much as possible, we used finger-jointed fronts combined with lacquered doors in the same color as the furniture. A nice contrast is provided by the stools and lamps in black marble, which match the existing display cabinets on the front wall.
With the idea of lightening the overall volumetry and giving a more decorative and warm look to the tall furniture, we created an open space in natural oak to store mugs or cookbooks.
Due to the limited height of the apartment, we opted for a ceiling hood with recirculation that filters the air in the room using plasma filter technology, highly recommended to have a purified air free of odors, allergens and impurities.
As always in our projects, we take care of every detail to achieve aesthetic unity in optimized spaces, based on unconventional ideas.
