Kitchen Design Thought – Incorporate A Column Into The Kitchen Island

April 23, 2022

Jan Willem Wijker of Bureauwijker has designed a brand new kitchen in a loft inside a transformed former manufacturing facility in Amsterdam.

The aim of the rework was to create a house that fosters shared experiences and to transform the dwelling rooms right into a single sociable house. To do that, Bureauwijker determined to merge the eating space with the kitchen, making a extra sensible and accessible zone.

Nonetheless, this additionally meant {that a} tall column was left in the midst of the spacious room. As a substitute of leaving the column standing alone within the open-plan room, they determined to include it into the kitchen island, which is made from spotless HIMACS Alpine White.

HIMACS was chosen for the countertop materials because it enabled the set up of a giant floor that wraps across the column, and can also be seamless and non-porous floor.

To maximise the island’s storage capability, further space for storing was added, each drawers and open shelving with a wooden end.
