Designed, built and fitted in-house, this project weaves a continuous oak story throughout the house, helping to link rooms and floors together. Inspired by the owner's time spent in Scandinavia, the joinery is simple in form, rich in texture, and warm in colour.
The key to ground floor spaces in a collection of inbuilt oak storage; starting with low level drawers in the living spaces, these then wrap around the brick piers and fireplace working as both seating and storage.
The drawers finish at an oak lined doorway, which signifies the transition between old and new spaces. The drawers become narrow oak cupboards, which serve as an extension of the kitchen storage. Moving towards the garden these blend into bench seating, which hide more storage and a discreet cat-flap. Above this, exposed oak rafters give texture and help to create a cosy seating space.
