The setting for the kitchen is a 1950s house near Tiel, a fruit-producing region in the heart of the Netherlands. The owners moved in eight years ago, attracted by the charm of the house and its proximity to their workplaces. In 2010 they decided to build an extension that would be the setting for a new Poggenpohl kitchen. Both husband and wife enjoy cooking, particularly Italian cuisine with its emphasis on fresh produce, simple flavours and generous hospitality. They’re also keen on gourmet dining, vegetarian cookery and exploring new forms of regional cuisine.
The new kitchen and its dining area was high on their list of priorities. They wanted an open, well-equipped space in which to cook for friends and family. In selecting a kitchen brand, the owners looked for quality, design and durability. This brought them to Poggenpohl. They chose to work with the Poggenpohl kitchen planner from Verhoeks Keukens and were delighted to find that the entire process of design, planning and installation was “perfect and harmonious.”
