Nathan Sproson, a property developer in Knutsford had a clear idea of the kitchen he wanted, so when it came to working on the design of his own modern farmhouse, he took his concept to Grant Hewlett at Zest Bathrooms and Kitchens. What evolved was a clean, modern and functional design – the result of the collaboration between the two.
Nathan described the symmetry he wanted, and his basic design for the kitchen in his expansive family room did not change as the project progressed. His scheme was developed to maximise use of the space.
His three identical sized islands were built using SieMatic’ S2 range featuring Silestone wrap-around work surfaces. The first island houses a one-and-a-half inset stainless steel sink with a Quooker boiling water tap and twin dishwashers. The second, Gaggenau induction hob and the third, a ten-seater dining table.
A floor to ceiling end wall of SieMatic units in Nutmeg, four matching Gaggenau appliances – two ovens, a microwave and a coffee maker, all set at eye level. At either end, there is a full-height fridge and a freezer.
The whole design occupies one half of the family room which extends across the rear of the house. A central island features a large screen television – one on the kitchen side and an identical model on the lounge side of the room. Wall to ceiling glazing maximises the link from the interior to the outside, with breathtaking views of open country to compliment.
