Exclusive conversion of the former London headquarters of the Titanic’s shipping company completed.
The famous “Ocean House” is among the most exclusive properties in the metropolis of London and offers among other aspects a priceless view of Big Ben and Trafalgar Square. The historic building was built in 1907 as the headquarters of the White Star Line, the Titanic’s shipping company. The “Oceanic House” later accommodated a bank, followed by departments of the British Ministry of Defence and a restaurant. Conversion work began in 2016 to transform the upper floors into six luxury apartments and a duplex penthouse.
As part of the 100-million-£ renovation of the “Oceanic House”, these exclusive apartments have now been equipped with spacious Poggenpohl kitchens. The designers from the London Poggenpohl studio Wigmore Kitchens planed modern, linear kitchens for the historic setting of the “Oceanic House”. High quality Poggenpohl fronts in pebble-grey matt lacquer and terra now emphasise the exclusive room details such as stucco ceilings and antique wood doors particularly well and create a unique atmosphere.
Poggenpohl unveils a sleek kitchen design in Tribeca’s Cooking by the Book gastronomic venue.
Innovation, luxury and functionality come together to create a dual space for the culinary arts in one of New York City’s most famous event venues located in Tribeca. The recently remodeled Cooking by the Book, founded in 1985 by Suzen O’Rouke now features a sleek and modern Poggenpohl kitchen complete with beautiful Teak Lava cabinetry.
Designed with flush doors to offer a smooth and seamless look utilizing Poggenpohl’s iconic rich materials which are made for heavy usage, the new Cooking by the Book kitchen provides clients and chefs with a highly functional space, improved workflow and plenty of hidden storage – all to provide the ultimate Poggenpohl culinary excellence.
Cooking by the Book has pioneered culinary corporate team-building events for over 28 years. Focused on educating, challenging and rewarding through, hands-on cooking programs lead by a core team of chefs well versed in both classic and contemporary food trends. Set in New York City's hip Tribeca neighborhood, the Cooking by the Book loft is famous for its state-of-the-art equipment in both dining room and kitchen.
“Improving upon a space in which the client had successfully run her business for years, while trying to feature some of Poggenpohl’s most beneficial and special functions was challenging and exciting to say the least,” states Roger Zierman, Designer and Studio Manager of Poggenpohl Downtown in New York. “I was thrilled to be able to deliver the same level of storage space and efficiency that is so important in a cooking venue, even though we were working with a smaller footprint. In addition, Poggenpohl’s finishes are known for their durability, particularly the textured laminates used in this design which will give ease of cleaning and longevity for Cooking by the Book’s future.”
“We faced some real challenges in this project,” states Suzen O’Rourke, founder of Cooking by the Book. “Probably the toughest, it had to be completed in a month or less. And the Poggenpohl team delivered perfectly... They were amazing to work with. Literally every cubic foot of cabinetry was customized to make our kitchen as efficient and as beautiful as possible.”
Perfectly tailored to the extraordinary design language of the Porsche Design Tower, the 132 residential units in the building have been equipped with exclusive luxury kitchens by Poggenpohl.
Porsche Design and Dezer Development are presenting an architectural and engineering masterpiece in the form of the Porsche Design Tower Miami. The Porsche Design Tower Miami is the first residential real estate project from Porsche Design and combines the characteristics of the brand: functional design, technical innovation, and trend-setting technologies. The highlight of the 60-storey tower is the patented, revolutionary car lift system that takes residents sitting in their vehicles up to their luxury homes “in the clouds”.
This lift is however only one of the luxury features that the Porsche Design Tower Miami offers its residents: Almost all residential units are equipped with a pool and an outdoor kitchen on the balcony. This is a first of its kind in the whole of Miami and is usually reserved for penthouse flats.
“Being able to witness the completion of the Porsche Design Tower Miami is a very special moment for the brand Porsche Design. The functional design, which makes the DNA of the brand, will accompany the residents in all areas of daily life and offer a unique quality of living: A perfect blend of function and technology”, says Jan Becker, the CEO of the Porsche Design Group.
Perfectly tailored to the extraordinary design language of the Porsche Design Tower, the 132 residential units in the building have been equipped with exclusive luxury kitchens by Poggenpohl. Poggenpohl designers planned spacious, state-of-the-art kitchens customised to suit the individual needs of the owners. The choice of high-quality material perfectly matches the technical impression of the building. A majority of the new flat owners therefore opted for the innovative glass front carbon.
Porsche Design and Poggenpohl are linked by a long-standing partnership. Both companies have been synonymous with unique design, functional perfection and innovative materials for decades now. In September 2007, they presented the jointly developed kitchen P ́7340 Design by Studio F. A. Porsche, marking a milestone in the history of fitted kitchens. In 2014, Poggenpohl and Porsche Design Studio continued their successful cooper- ation in developing the P ́7350 Design by Studio F. A. Porsche.
