									Kitchen Case Study

Three Bedroom Apartment in Marylebone

When she was commissioned to renovate and re-design an existing

family bathroom in a top floor three-bedroom apartment in a

Marylebone mansion block Genny Henderson, interior designer and

owner of The Room Company, wasn’t really given a brief, except the

shower should be as large as possible,   On seeing Genny’s ideas for

this bathroom, the client, a divorced Canadian banker, decided the

whole appartment could benefit from Genny’s interpretation of

contemporary, masculine style, employing cutting edge technology

and innovative new products to aid her design solutions.

The kitchen was the last room to be renovated at the end of the seven

month project. Genny created space, in what was originally a small

room with an uneven ceiling by getting rid of a protruding built in
cupboard and curving the wall to create an eating area, where the

Italian round glass table fits perfectly.   Within the curved wall, two

rectangular recesses each display a custom made blue glass vase to

contrast with the soft, natural colours of the walls and furniture.

Another space-saving idea was to install a disappearing sliding door

to the kitchen. Made of oak on the hall side and stainless steel the

kitchen side, to complement various Miele appliances, including a

built-in compartmentalised wine chiller and coffee maker, it is

practical and good looking. The clean neutral kitchen comprises of

wall-mounted pull up cupboards, which are lit up from the top. Floor

level cupboards provide ample storage, as well as housing the fully

integrated dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Over the

convector hob is a glass and stainless steel extractor and the kettle

and toaster are cleverly hidden behind a pull-down frosted glass

screen.   The kitchen is included in the cutting edge iPod sound

system, which works off of several iPod docking stations recessed into

walls allowing multiple iPods to be charged and heard in every room.
