The designers made the most of an ideal positioning to create this open, layered kitchen complete with sliding splashback that reveals scullery behind

Designed by Mark Bruce, Designmarked Kitchens

From the designer:

This stunning multi layered home had a kitchen and scullery layout that set the scene for something spectacular.

Designmarked was commissioned to open the space up so the owners could enjoy the views and family no matter what part of the kitchen they were in.

By removing the scullery portioning wall and designing cabinetry that held a sliding splashback the scullery and kitchen could be separate if required.

To make both the rooms work a fridge location between them was required – so the fridge was positioned at the entrance to the scullery which made it easily accessible for all.

The homeowner also liked the idea of accessing the BBQ area from the scullery.

We managed this by including a simple hinged glazed door from scullery to BBQ – this also flooded the room with natural light.

The spatial planning in the kitchen works well as the hob-fridge-sink relationship is accessible from both scullery sink and island sink.

Bench heights are altered to accommodate the owner, the 850mm high hob and the 950mm high island sink.

The architectural design of the house is magnificent, with four mono pitched layers dug deeply into a hill as it climbs.

Plenty of exposed concrete together with strong rectangular shapes in very dark natural finishes feature in the home.

Designmarked wanted to replicate that masculinity in the kitchen design using a lot of negative detailing, matte and textured finishes.

Strong lines and an extensive use of black met the brief.
