Jack Trench Bespoke Kitchen - Barnes
Neolith is a sintered compact surface with ceramic-like qualities and a luxurious satin finish and it is the principal material for this bespoke kitchen. Though regularly used for worktops and as architectural cladding, to the best of our knowledge Neolith has not previously been incorporated into the design of kitchen cabinetry. As such, a crucial part of our design development process involved testing and prototyping different techniques to determine how this solid surface material could be effectively applied to joinery as a cladding while retaining its structural integrity.
The completed kitchen features a cantilevered hob elevation, a full-height elevation with a hidden pantry and an island with breakfast bar – all clad in Neolith Cement grey. And though distinctly minimalist in its design, the overall impact of this bespoke kitchen is one of pure and understated luxury.
