King's Gate Kitchen

A large and impressive kitchen to complement a new extension to a substantial granite home in Aberdeen's West End.

Working in collaboration with architect Derek Young, the large new extension featured lots of glass and the kitchen cabinets had to be of a scale and proportion to suit the new space.

The biggest design challenge came from a massive steel structure that effectively supported the corner of the original house. This created a heavy pillar in the centre of the room. To soften the effect of this pillar, we designed and built a semi circular central island around the pillar and fitted a convex tall breakfast cupboard on the outer face.

We were also asked to include a long breakfronted line of extra tall household storage cabinets with deep drawers below.

Most of the cabinets were supplied with a classic hand painted finish in Farrow & Ball James White but the central island and the convex tall breakfast cupboard were supplied in rich grained Elm
