A bulthaup b3 kitchen, designed and installed by hobsons|choice, was featured in the March edition of Essential Kitchen, Bathroom and Bedroom magazine. The article, written by Amelia Thorpe, describes in detail how Laura Warren, h|c Design Consultant, worked with our clients to create a modern kitchen that perfectly complements the character of their period house.
Given that their home is a listed Jacobean manor house with the kitchen in a late Victorian extension, the project had its fair share of challenges, involving planning permissions, plumbing, heating, lighting and electrical work. As well as improving the insulation, adding new underfloor heating and flooring, they also took down an internal wall in the adjacent utility to create a larger laundry room, removed a bulky water tank suspended from the kitchen ceiling and added an underfloor wine cellar.
But probably the most significant challenge was a design one, as Mette explains. “I’m Danish and like Scandinavian sleek minimalism, so we were very focussed on how to create a modern kitchen which would fit comfortably into such an old house,” she says. The solution came in the form of bulthaup b3 furniture from Hobsons Choice. “Once we had seen the crisp look of bulthaup, it was very difficult to look at anything else,” says Mette. “The natural colours combine with clean lines to beautiful effect and in a way that we felt would blend harmoniously with the original stone windows and old timber beams of the room.” – Extract from the full article by Amelia Thorpe, EKBB March 2017
