We love this kitchen, not least for the fact that it is a great example of a BarrKitchen being whatever our clients want it to be. We pride ourselves on making kitchens with no constraints, a claim very few kitchen companies can make, giving our clients the flexibility to ask for quite literally whatever they want.
The design of this unusual and stunning space allowed for a kitchen full of character and individual expression. The design included fielded panelling to cabinetry, a custom designed over AGA shelf, integrated bench seats and table bar (made to emulate a train carriage) and strikingly individual shades of blues and yellows chosen by our client from the Little Greene heritage range.
Small and unusual details, such as extension of the custom made AGA plinth to incorporate a space for the cat to curl up off the floor, plinth corbels to the cabinetry with complementary end panel detailing. The result … a space truly like no other and one that expresses, absolutely, the personalities of the individuals for whom it was made.
The extension itself was created from the conversion of a pitched roof garage and newly formed linkage structure to the main house. Built sympathetically by StuartBarrCDR from old red brick, the extension from the outside is indistinguishable from the original Victorian farmhouse. Internally the huge vaulted ceiling, with tongue and groove cladding and exposed ducting, feature structural column and natural slate floors make this open plan kitchen/ living area a striking aesthetic combination.
BarrJoinery, also one of the StuartBarr group companies, created oversized box sash windows, stable door, back door and French doors with side panel glazing, in keeping with the rest of the building.
