OLD HOUSE NEW HOME
The first design collaboration between ourselves and creative consultant and stylist Jane Field-Lewis was a bespoke burnt cedar and copper kitchen for a period property in St Leonards on Sea, which was recently featured on architect George Clarke’s new Channel 4 programme ‘Old House New Home’. Commissioned by George, we set about designing and creating an individual kitchen that was to use a unique combination of materials and finishes that architecturally worked within the stunning Regency/Early Victorian proportions of the space.
Each unit is free-standing, made by hand using solid Pine, which was scorched with a naked flame to darken and match the Shou Sugi Ban Cedar cupboard doors. Using standard kitchen unit dimensions meant that a built-in under-counter fridge could be fitted, alongside a beautiful black sink and tap.
