If you’ve ever wondered what chefs want out of their own kitchens, Fraher Architects’ latest project offers one answer: simplicity. Through an extension to an existing London flat, they gave their client, who runs several fast-paced restaurants, a no-fuss cooking space where she could relax and socialize in the off hours with friends.
A sturdy concrete countertop curves around the entire length of the kitchen, finished in a texture Webster describes as “bug splattered.” Despite the unappetizing name, it works well for rolling out dough. Its circular motif reappears in the custom cabinets’ finger pulls, which also help ventilate the cupboards. The fixtures are from Kubus and the appliances are from Miele.
