design of a kitchen •
follow-up of the construction site •
The task was to design a rather unconventional, colourful and airy kitchen that respects and even highlights the historical elements of this 1950s Luxembourg flat, such as the typical Villeroy & Boch tiles on the floor, the rounded corners of the ceiling and the built-in windows with textured glass.
As ruth is not a fan of monotonous and plain designs, she decided to combine different materials and textures such as wood, textured glass and terrazzo and play with open and closed kitchen fronts to achieve a friendly look. The horizontal linearity makes the kitchen look very light and gives the room a certain calming effect. The green and yellow colours as well as the use of natural wood give the space a cosy and warm feeling and complement the existing colour palette of the floor tiles. The decision to incorporate sliding doors for the upper shelves allows the kitchen owner a certain freedom and playfulness when it comes to what they want to display and also add to the lightness of the design. The whole thing is elegantly rounded off by matt black detail elements, such as the tap, the sink, the sockets and the handles.
