Project Description

This extension of a family home in Templeogue transformed how the space worked and the kitchen is at the heart of that success. Very much a contemporary approach of having the kitchen cabinetry feel like furniture, the kitchen is the heartbeat of this home. The full wall of cabinetry conceals a doorway through to a hard working utility room. The island brings the whole scheme together and works beautifully with the rest of the space. 

Many of our clients want a contemporary kitchen, but are nervous about a very glossy or matt finish. In the design, we made the doors from scratch in our workshop using an Ash veneer, which was then painted. The impression is of a rich, textured finish that retains the sense of a more traditional approach.

Every detail here is bespoke and thought through. Black appliances from De Dietrich bring another layer of richness and luxury, connecting the kitchen to other finishes in the space. Countertops are kept clear with a boiling water tap from Zip (no kettle) and a pullout shelf for toaster & coffee machine hidden behind the larder door.

Bulkhead built to tie the new extended space together with the original space.

Double larder with impressive storage for the entire family

Oven, combi & warming drawer from De Dietrich keep the colour palette to a minimum, ensuring elegance and restraint in the design.

Durable white quartz countertops, keeping the material palette refined. Full backsplash behind the hob runs all the way up to top-boxes above

Pullout spray ‘Landis’ tap from Caple & boiling water tap from Zip keeps the island clear of clutter 

Hidden storage in the island, behind seating area

Door through to utility room becomes part of the kitchen

A kitchen like this holds much of it’s beauty & practicality behind the doors.
