To the rear of the kitchen, the large pantry is given even more space by having its work- surfaces and storage tucked into side niches. So while the scullery is on show to the living area, the work surfaces and shelving are not. In addition, the entire area can be concealed from the main living area by closing a frosted glass cavity slider when required. The choice of translucent glass ensures a sense of connection to the kitchen even when the door is shut. Completing the pantry zone is a dramatic wine cellar, offering a striking backdrop to draw the eye past the working area of the kitchen. “The end result is a kitchen design that’s sleek, streamlined, and a focal point without outweighing the breathtaking outlooks.” see more images online: search 258328589 at more by this designer: search davinia sutton at Facing page: Understated cabinetry handles contribute to the pared-back look, while push-to-open storage is at the front of the island.
