Heritage Building: Driving the Design with Detailing (Part Three: The Castle Kitchen)

 My colleague and friend Richard Vaughan and I designed the 'Castle Kitchen'. It was a time of intense analysis and joyful resolution of mixing old and new. 

Here are a couple of the elements: 

A stainless steel pot hanging frame over the stove was designed to be strong enough to carry a substantial number of pots and utensils. See top left of the photo and detail below.

An appliance cupboard and built in steamer was designed so that the heavy appliances could remain on the bench behind a slotted timber tambor, expertly crafted by Richard. The stainless steel hanging frame detail was repeated over the tambor, to be extra 'castle like'.
