This lively kitchen was designed to bring light and air into this North facing Bath townhouse. We've utilised every bit of space with these base units in order to avoid having wall units blocking the light and space. Each corner unit has an internal sliding mechanism attached to the door to allow full use of the space, and two full height larder units with drawers give plenty of storage. Each carcass has been handmade to fit the appliances that were already in place and the doors individually laminated.
Shaker Kitchen & Utility Room
A bespoke shaker kitchen and utility room, made for a beautiful country house in a village set in the Cotswolds. Each unit was made to measure in order to fill quirky shapes, angles and odd dimensions. Solid wood fronts have been machined and fitted to all of the cabinets, with corresponding solid wood doors handmade to fit; every part primed and painted by hand.
Green Galley Kitchen & Utility Room
This Galley Kitchen and Utility Room in Bristol needed some groundwork before we could get onto the kitchen units. Re-routing the plumbing, the electrics and levelling the flooring took us a long time to get right. The engineered Oak flooring across the entire ground floor sets off the hand painted cabinets nicely, and matches the short stave solid Oak worktops. With an eye on keeping things traditional, there are Belfast sinks in each of the rooms. Adjustable shelving within each cabinet, and sliding doors on those cabinets in the narrowest section allow for two people to cook easily without tripping over open doors.
Wood & White Kitchen
What this small flat in West London lacks in floor space, it makes up for in character, with high ceilings and wide open windows. To make the most of the light the plywood units were finished in a natural white and then treated with a clear lacquer to protect against grease and stains. Full height wall units give plenty of storage, and we utilised the space in the corner that had previously been ignored. The solid Beech work surface was chosen for its tight hard wearing and beautiful grain, whilst providing the prefect match for the original floorboards and our new white units.
Contemporary Alcove Storage
This pair of plywood wardrobes fill the alcoves of a Victorian terrace in Bath. Prior to our works, the property was last renovated years previously. After sanding the floorboards and removing a concrete and tile cover across the chimney, the original fire place was discovered. A new surround and mantle piece were installed, with some new tiling to finish it off. To keep things light, we white washed the front of the wardrobe units, so that the wood grain was still visible - matching the grain across the drawers and doors. A clear satin lacquer was applied to all surfaces for a hard wearing smooth finish.
Bespoke Bicycle Storage
This one was special. The solution to storing your bikes in a lovely London town house? Get them off the ground and hanging upright. These units were made from a combination of veneered Oak boards and solid Oak fronts. Each hook was handmade and welded to size - allowing each bike to be staggered in height and avoid a clash of handlebars. What do you do with all your cycling stuff though? Store it in the drawers below of course, or in the dresser opposite that we designed to replicate a podium across the doors on the upper half. Tools, bottles, books. Everything in its right place.
We’ve made a few tables and chairs in our time, as well as coat stands and bed frames, so here’s a selection of our freestanding furniture. Designed with a tip towards the modernist and minimal, and enhanced with some colourful laminates, these plywood designs are meant to be simple to assemble and keep waste to a minimum when machining.
Triangles. Tricky spaces to work with, but when you get it right, you can open a whole new section of storage - as these storage units show. Hanging space, drawers and shelving help keep things off the floor in this loft conversion in South West London. Made from Birch plywood, laminated on both sides, a clean and simple finish is achieved that is wipeable and easy to clean.
Built for a beautiful set of Almshouses in South East London, these wardrobe units took inspiration from the architecture around them, utilising the gothic arch to match the surrounding design details. Built from Oak veneered plywood and solid Oak with a clear spray lacquered finish applied to all the surfaces, the curves, trims and grain matching were the challenge to get right and keep in proportion with each set of doors.
The devil is in the detail here, three different laminate colours, hiding the inner workings of the handle for each door. A soft pastel blue, complemented with Oak veneered handle reveals and a white backing to match the cupboard internals. All constructed from Birch plywood, before a long series of glue ups and pressing for all the laminated parts before trimming everything to size and finishing the edges.
This listed building renovation needed new doors built to match those already in place. We constructed them all from Sapele hardwood, with plywood panels and finished with a specially machined decorative moulding to match that of the originals. We can’t take credit for the rest of the impeccable restoration, but result has given this Cotswold cottage sets of doors that will hopefully live as long as those originals have done.
A complete bathroom refit. Our work started with the floor, insulating and then laying new floorboards before fitting the rest of the bathroom. The fun came with the cabinets, with an airing cupboard tailored to fit the remaining space around the boiler and a lovely unit fitted above the sink, fitted with LED lighting and a custom made mirror set.
