GEC Anderson have supplied their stainless-steel work surfaces for a modernised St. Albans home creating a family hub within the kitchen.
At a cost of approximately £1,000 per square metre, the original structure has been insulated and overclad with timber, while the uprated fenestration includes optimization of solar capture.
The existing garage will now be converted to create further accommodation.
Commenting on the project, homeowner Scott Batty said: “The design retains a sense of the original 1970s house, whilst bringing it up to date in terms of layout and comfort. Allowing for a family’s lifetime it can now accommodate grown-up children, elderly parents and home working. “
“For the kitchen, the objectives were to open it up to the dining area and create a family hub for the house. Amongst the strategies were to work within the existing footprint of the kitchen and to declutter – omitting high level units or shelves – but increasing the worktop area with an island, while linking back to a sense of 1970s design.”
“For this I wanted to use stainless steel as part of a minimal palette because it is durable and hygienic while, over time, it will acquire a patina.”
GEC delivered and installed the worktops, which present sharp details and a continuous surface with integral sink.
