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.
