The Arts & Crafts house is a renovation and addition to a 1950s house located in the traditional Cotswolds town of Chipping Campden. The design of the house was inspired by the Arts & Crafts heritage of the area, the existing building and a desire by the architects to reinterpret vernacular building traditions.
Working closely with the architect owners of the property, the aim was to create a less formal style of kitchen mirroring the materials used throughout the building.
Tall cabinets were built flush into the wall at one end of the new kitchen extension with a working island centrally placed below the large vaulted space.
A contrasting bamboo casual seating area wrapped one end of the island to give a freestanding look with matching wall cabinets and floating shelving used on the rear wall for additional storage and to soften a typically “fully fitted” look.
