The timber for this kitchen has an unusual back story. The oak started life as the floorboards in the bases of Belgian railway trucks, and decades of industrial use infused it with unique character. We transformed 70 lengths of it into these doors, drawer fronts and open shelves, as well as five cabinets.
One of the wall cabinets is fitted with strips of oak cut into triangular sections, which creates places to store plates and bowls, with storage for wine bottles in the smaller shelves at the top. The triangular theme is also reflected in the shelf supports.
The kitchen is fitted with the latest in modern kitchen design, with ‘magic corner’ shelving, recycling bins in pull-out sections, and a separate sink for food preparation.
