This Bespoke Galley Kitchen was designed to provide an efficient working area in a long but narrow kitchen in a cottage in Freshford, near Bath.
The Worktops which are in 'Volcanics' Acrylic Stone have been shaped and polished into concave sweeping curves in the main working areas in front of the Butler Sink and the Integrated Gas Hob. To the right of the sink is an Integrated Draining Board recessed into the work-surface.
Above the Butler Sink is a symmetrical row of Wall Units with Twin Cupboards surrounding a Wine Rack with a glazed door and a wine accessories drawer underneath.
Opposite the sink area the worktop has been installed with an integrated Gas Hob. Below the hob is a chest of drawers containing three dovetail jointed solid tulipwood drawers. The bottom drawer is actually an extra deep Pan Drawer that has been disguised to look like two drawers from the outside.
Above the hob area is an Integrated Extractor Fan that has been built into the surrounding wall units and ducted out through the far right hand wall behind the cornice. The facade of the cupboards surrounding the extractor fan has been designed to mirror the symmetrical wall units above the sink.
All the Door Frames of the Cupboards and Drawer units are Staff Beaded with an 8 mm staff bead.
The Cupboards of the wall units are 100 mm deeper than standard kitchen wall units and so the Cupboard Doors have been fitted with 100 mm deep Chrome Wire Cages on the backs of the doors giving easy access to the extra storage space.
To the far right of the extractor fan is a set of Glazed Display Cupboards with Bi-fold doors. The display cupboards run right into the alcove beside the oven and conceal the extractor fan's ducting behind their cornice.
The cupboard under the worktop below the display cupboards have been fitted with a 'Magic Corner' (see next main page) giving access to the storage space in the adjacent alcove.
The Kitchen Units are painted in Farrow and Ball's 'Pointing no.2003'.
