Kitchens by J.S Geddes

The right angle

This client was looking for a sleek and modern kitchen to put the final finishing touch to the house they had bought five years ago. It had to be handle less so our designers suggested Poggenpohl units in white with blue glass accents and with a bold, angled island unit to add interest at the heart of the design. Appliances are all from Miele.

Work triangle

This client knew they wanted a Poggenpohl kitchen and turned to Geddes to make their dream become a reality. They asked the designer to incorporate living, casual dining and perching within the concept.

The resulting kitchen, with its striking three sided island, uses natural tones of stone, wood and grey with a bank of built in cooking appliances and an unusual metallic plinth so that the island appears to hover above the floor.

Three into one

The client approached Geddes to create an open plan kitchen/dining space. The designers at Geddes recommended removing a wall between the existing rooms and advised bi-fold doors to make a connection into the client's much loved garden. The Poggenpohl island, in grey with white worktop, mirrors the shape of the room so that the kitchen works in harmony with the new architecture of the house.

Midas touch

As this kitchen links to the dining area the client requested a sociable design where she could prepare food but still feel involved with the rest of the family. She also wanted the kitchen to have a relaxed, ‘furniture feel’ to soften the transition from kitchen to dining.

To make best use of the large space Geddes created twin island units linked by a Silestone breakfast bar. The Poggenpohl kitchen is in matt pearl grey lacquer with Siemens appliances and to add to the sense of space the wall units are set into a recess surrounded by gold mirrors to give an infinity effect.

Mixed materials

For this family kitchen the designers at Geddes were asked to explore a mix of materials and colours, hence the use of wood veneer, lacquer and composite stone, that result in a contemporary design with a wealth of interesting features.

This is a large space but with careful planning the kitchen is now a comfortable family friendly room with seats around the television and a wine cooler and coffee machine in the breakfast bar, convenient for entertaining. There is a bank of Mtouch and Mastercool Miele appliances and ample worksurface so that although this kitchen looks good it is also a practical place in which to prepare meals.

To add to the wow factor, the units appear to float above the floor thanks to a recessed plinth.

Creative thinking

The client for this family kitchen gave no brief other than to specify that they wanted to keep their existing fridge, they were intrigued to see what Geddes would come up with.

The designers chose a mix of materials and shapes, including an elegantly curved breakfast bar, to move away from the previous linear layout and introduce more character. Finishes include sand grey lacquer and teak door finishes with Silestone and Corian worksurfaces. Rich burgundy glass was introduced as a back panel to the open shelving for added interest.
