A rustic sustainable kitchen made from reclaimed materials.
We used mixed materials for this unique rustic kitchen – solid French pippy oak for the doors and worktops; unfinished angle iron and box steel for framework, and 100% birch ply for our carcasses. A reclaimed Belfast sink nestled comfortably within the 65mm thick oak worktop and reclaimed brass taps perched above giving a really characterful centrepiece of the kitchen.
Sustainable materials and fitting appliances
A Sub Zero fridge freezer was wrapped in the work surface and gave this kitchen a fixing point for one of several reclaimed task lights. The room was big enough for an island but in order to allow a more flexible working space, we stylised the island like a big trolley – on vintage castor wheels, braked, that allow for the unit to be easily rolled around.
A dresser unit with tea drawers sat well between the existing architraves and allowed for an additional working area. Our clients had the luxury of a large larder which meant the kitchen itself could be largely for appliances and food preparation.
