In the former home of architect Bart Vandewalle, the kitchen was completely updated to the latest standards. The client, a passionate amateur chef, requested the perfect mix between the functionality of a restaurant kitchen and the atmosphere of a family kitchen for daily use. The central volume serves as a practical mise en place worksurface, as well as a dining table for six people. Given the strong demand for storage space all walls were used as cabinets, both high and low.
The material used has been limited. In order to form unity with the bar area at the front of the house, the lightly greyed oak parquet was extended into the kitchen. Wall units in black stained oak contribute to the serene atmosphere of the space, the calm before the storm. Dekton as worktop and backsplash, an ultra compact material that is ideal because of its strength and heat resistance for use in the kitchen.
The marble look provides a little playful accent.
