Gemma Dudgeon Interiors
A bespoke kitchen diner. A collaboration with Patrick Lewis Architects and our Client, whom we’ve worked with for over ten years, and Nicola Harding Garden Design. We fully refurbished this Grade II listed Georgian townhouse. The highly creative rear extension was featured in The Sunday Times and won second place in New London Architecture’s Don’t Move, Improve! awards.

The scope of works includes the creation of a new side and rear extension at ground floor, reconfiguration of the existing ground floor (including conversion of the existing garage), reconfiguration of 1st floor and decoration of 2nd floor.
As part of a rear extension with glass panel doors leading directly to the garden, Ealing-based Vogue Kitchens was commissioned to design a kitchen that would comprise part of a large open plan ground floor area with the kitchen and dining room leading to a further open plan living space. The space benefits from a vast amount of light coming from the glass doors and also from a rectangular ceiling lantern incorporated in the space between the property and the extension. To contrast with the vibrance of the pure white walls and ceilings, the clients were keen to find a kitchen that featured a dark, dramatic and unusual finish. They also required a neat and uncluttered design as the kitchen zone was to be used for cooking and informal socialising while the formal dining area is only a few steps away. They wanted an easy to clean kitchen with plenty of storage, and smart cooking appliances that would make entertaining easier. Because the ceiling depth was different between the architecture of the original property and the extension itself and the design of the kitchen island would bisect both areas, extraction was also a main consideration. For the tall kitchen furniture and for the island, Sharan Johal creative director at Vogue suggested premium range Leicht Minera matt lacquer handleless door fronts in Kiruna colourway, which has an anti-fingerprint shimmering metallic two tone oxydised finish. These match with carbon grey laminate edging on the cabinetry and plinths for a seamless effect. The tall units were designed to fit floor to ceiling and feature dry food storage and housings for two Siemens HomeConnect Wi-Fi enabled ovens plus a warming drawer. A Siemens integrated larder fridge and tall freezer were transferred from the client’s previous kitchen, which was also designed and supplied by Vogue. To continue the back run of cabinetry and to differentiate the space to allow for freestanding and decorative kitchen items, base units were suggested with pull-out drawers underneath to store pans, plates and bowls. The three side-by-side overhead wall units all feature Servo Drive opening systems for one-touch access and easy closing and are designed to accommodate glasses, cups and crockery with under-cabinet lighting that can be activated by voice control via a home hub. The ultra-slim 12mm countertop work surface by Neolith is in Iron Grey colourway, with a satin finish to complement the cabinetry. This Neolith worksurface continues through to the three metre kitchen island, which has an 80mm raised Ash wood cantilever breakfast bar attached to it in black oil finish by Spekva that also includes an overhang at one end. This informal seating area features the client’s own timber and metal-framed bar stools. Together with handleless cupboards under the worksurface, the island features a 60cm Siemens integrated dishwasher and a food preparation space to one end with a Blanco undermount stainless steel sink and Quooker Flex Boiling Water tap. Integrated at an equal distance from the centre of the island, and situated directly in front of the ovens is an 80cm Siemens induction hob with an air venting system, which negates the need for overhead extraction.
A beautiful luxury kitchen featuring Australian grey marble throughout, coupled with light grey lacquered and dark grey stained veneer furniture. The marble feature stone splashback has been book matched, polished and cut carefully around the brass detailing. Fisher and Paykel appliances, a Kohler flush mounted sink and crittal doors to the garden complete this Art Deco inspired open plan kitchen living space in Chislehurst.
The brief for this brand-new house extension was to create a Scandinavian-style, open-plan scheme including a large island around which adults could socialise and children do their homework. The modern Shaker-style kitchen has yellow and pink accents – traditional Swedish décor. Floor to ceiling cabinetry maximises the all-important storage space needed for big families.
A Victorian terraced townhouse set over five storeys, with five bedrooms and four bathrooms on the upper two floors; a double drawing room, family room, snug, study and hall on the first and ground levels, and a utility room, nanny suite and kitchen-dining room leading to a garden on the lower level. Settling here from overseas, the owners of this house in Primrose Hill chose the area for its quintessentially English architecture and bohemian feel. They loved the property’s original features and wanted their new home to be light and spacious, with plenty of storage and an eclectic British feel. As self-confessed ‘culture vultures’, the couple’s art collection formed the basis of their home’s colour palette.

To the rear is a large kitchen with full length bi-fold doors opening on to the garden. It is the hub of the home, a place for the kids to do their homework as well as for the family to cook and eat together. A more formal dining area connects directly to the kitchen creating a light, open plan feel but can be closed off for more intimate occasions with full height pocket doors that slide out from the wall.
