PROJECT: MODULAR KITCHEN + RE-CONSTRUCTED STONE , ISLINGTON LONDON, UK

YEAR 2022

The kitchen design is inspired by the  existing brutalist architecture context of the house, to create a modern look with modern brutalist inspired finishes: using granite stone for the kitchen top with a matt finish look to feel like  cement and modern natural oak panels pre built modular carcasses.

 

The granite top was recovered and repaired with a colored epoxy resin. The stone, originally with a glossy finish, has been treated opaque to obtain a concrete  effect finish. The resin for reassembling the granite pieces was mixed with a water-based paint to match with the grain of the natural stone. 

 

The kitchen lighting is set for a dramatic effect , using integrated  recessed LED strips, hidden inside the wall units for a grazing effect that enhances the quality of the finish. The appliances are all built-in except for the oven and the washer/dryer and the modules are equipped with doors with anti-stain treatment, push-and-pull opening without handles.
