In 2006 the owner of this 1960s apartment decided it was time for a complete refit, including the installation of a Poggenpohl kitchen. He had strong views about the décor and design. The result is a clear, simply-defined space with strong lines and powerful monochromatic colours. As someone who enjoys cooking, the customer was clear about his requirements. The back wall houses the sink, hob, oven, and high-gloss black cupboards with rectilinear handles. The long, dramatic island bar makes a superb focal point when the couple are entertaining friends. The floor of the working area is dark-stained wood, in contrast to the subtle ivory-toned carpet in the rest of the apartment. The kitchen is a dramatic design statement within the open-plan apartment. The chosen materials even harmonise with the sweeping, open staircase that leads down to the kitchen.

A typical day begins with coffee at the island unit. The evening meal is often a simple pan-fried fish or dish of seafood. The owner also bakes and roasts when entertaining using the built-in oven, and likes to finish off a meal with an excellent cheese board.
The owner has a second home in Paris, also equipped with a Poggenpohl kitchen, so he had first-hand experience of the brand’s quality. He chose Poggenpohl for its high reputation and in seven years of use the kitchen has lived up to his demanding expectations.
