For the family – a husband and wife with two daughters – the natural surroundings of the forest provide them with a daily, ever-changing spectacle. Their home, built five years ago, features large floor to ceiling windows that allow natural light to flood into the living area. Their brief to the architects was to create a simple, elegant home without excessive adornment or detail. As it was a new-build, the owners were also able to specify the very latest in technology – including a Poggenpohl kitchen. They chose Poggenpohl because of its reputation for quality, knowing that the company has been making kitchens for over 120 years. They saw the
kitchen as an investment both for the home and their own wellbeing. Five years later they feel that the result met their needs perfectly. They also single out the Poggenpohl design team for praise. They listened to their requirements, worked with the design and colour scheme of the house and offered many suggestions and insights. The family enjoys Russian, Italian and Oriental cuisine and the kitchen has become the natural centre of their home. After a long working day it’s a place where they meet before preparing an evening meal. They also enjoy entertaining friends, so they make good use of the kitchen’s facilities.
