Spring Shaw

Nettlebed, Oxfordshire

A multi-purpose space, the Spring Shaw kitchen was designed to be a family kitchen, an entertaining space and as an artisan studio for our client's biscuiterie.

Custom-made flat-fronted cabinetry is spray-finished in Farrow & Ball's Stiffkey Blue for a durable, contemporary finish. Matt black linear pull handles from Viefe sit discretely to the tops and sides of doors and drawers, nodding to the property’s fine line fenestration.

A large central island is unencumbered by fixings, giving a huge, clear, usable space. Dekton by Cosentino worktops, Entzo in colour, are mitre-cut at one end creating a perfect waterfall down to the floor. At the other end, cabinetry beneath finishes in a corner L-shape – allowing four chairs to tuck in around the island. The marbled surface is also used to create upstands and the mid-base for the pantry dresser cupboards, where it acts as a cold slab for fresh produce storage.


The Quooker tap gives boiling water on demand and Miele appliances, including twin eye-level ovens and a "barely there" flat integrated induction hob, allow for professional efficiency.


A walk-in modern pantry houses an integrated American-style fridge-freezer and floor and utility storage to one side, and a full-height dresser-style bank of storage cupboards to the other.
