A beautiful project created by our Kingsbridge showroom was in Marycombe, a substantial new build property and a perfect example of what goes in to producing a kitchen to suit a very individual situation. Architect Roger Robinson is a champion of architecture that suits and is inspired by its surroundings. After many years of creating lovely properties for local clients he designed Marycombe as the dream home for himself and his wife Frances.
The house's position overlooks the Kingsbridge estuary and is a model of Roger's architectural precepts; light and spacious and easy to live in as well as having a strong sense of place.
The kitchen occupies a well-defined position but is open on two sides so that the space flows into the dining area and the lounge beyond. It was planned and designed to provide a sensible working area that features painted cabinets and a Corian work surface with integral sinks. There are no wall units, even on the walled side where the cooker is sited, but the base cabinets provide ample storage as well as a clever curved end breakfast bar.
Developed from Treyone's Classic range the kitchen's cabinet door frames are in maple with a traditional moulding and flat centre panel. The edges are simply rounded, the woodwork painted a Eucalyptus colour and completed with cast iron handles. The result is a very personal kitchen that fits in perfectly with the house's open and inviting character.
