The clients brief was simple; modernise the kitchen in keeping with the timeless aesthetic of this iconic Morzine Chalet.
For the main kitchen we decided to combine crown cut oak veneer with the timeless elegance of FENIX Grigio Antrim. We added curved edges and book matched the oak vertically. The oak was lightly brushed to add depth and then finished with a limed oak stain. For the worktop we chose Aura 22 from the Dekton Natural Selection which honours the Calacatta and Carrara marbles. It paired perfectly with the FENIX, limed oak and the stunning silver GAGGENAU ovens.
At the far end of the kitchen is a stairwell that curves its way up to the next floor. We decided to hide this, but still make use of the space underneath. This resulted in an ‘oak wall’ with a mixture of fixed panels, drawers and cupboards clearly showing the book-matched grain running top to bottom.
Along the right-hand bank of tall units, we created a coffee station which utilises the HAWA pocket door system.
