The Brief

A challenging barn conversion project features a huge island with lower-level dining area, a hive of activity where the family spends time together.

The room measures 12x7m with a height of 6m and the space could have become too cavernous, but by using warm oak units and granite it has a modern feel with materials still referencing the natural surrounding countryside.

In spite of the sheer scale of the kitchen it isn´t overwhelming and manages to feel cosy and inviting

Designer's Tips

If you´re a keen cook one of your best investments should be an ingenious swing larder located next to your fridge so you have all your ingredients in one dedicated zone.
