THE COACH HOUSE
This job evolved & developed just as we had hoped from the initial consultation with the clients. There was a lot of scope here, beautiful original features, internal cobbled walls & amazing oak beams. However, the space was not maximising its potential, it was dark, damp & was certainly not the beating heart of the home.
We discussed initial kitchen designs and gained a thorough understanding of what the clients required & how they use the kitchen currently. Form + Function always at the top of our agenda at SQ1 Workshop. It became clear that the owners were fully engaged in redeveloping the entire space….Yay!!…. So we started at the front door!
Caroline Wright of Niche Interior Design, was commissioned to design & project manage all the building works. Together we worked collaboratively to give this 18th Century Coach House a contemporary makeover, in keeping with the craft and ancestry of the original building & its materials.
The predominant feature of the kitchen was the Corian faced handless doors & drawers with a sophisticated matt finish. The Corian took on a monolithic quality, heavy & grounded juxtaposed against the newly sand blasted cobble stone & rustic oak beams. Solid oak & granite further engaged the old with the new. Heated lime stone floor & a complimentary new lighting system completed the transformation. Love Love LOVE!!
