The house’s original kitchen was small and dark and was separated from the adjoining three rooms overlooking Øresund Sound. The wall to the dining room was therefore knocked down to make room for a large kitchen island, which stands as a strong statement in the middle of the room, which also features a grand bay window and a marble fireplace.
The choice of colours and materials was inspired the villa’s location by Øresund, near sand, beach and sea. The grey kitchen island has a countertop in white, frosted Quartzite with greenish shades and a hand-forged sink in solid brass that will develop a beautiful patina over time.
Quartzite is a natural stone whose grain structure is similar to marble, but with the strength of granite. This makes it resistant to scratches and acids from lemons, vinegar, etc.
On the kitchen island, the cooktop, with Gaggenau’s 400 range, provides the ideal culinary setup. The Flex induction cooktop, gas hobs, Teppan Yaki and table extractor fan are controlled by the illuminated stainless steel controls, which are beautifully framed in the vertical part of the Quartzite countertop.
The handmade drawers are made of solid oak with finger joints, and uno form’s range of accessories completes the experience of an exclusive, functional kitchen.
The entrance hall, bathrooms and wardrobes are designed in the same Nordic style, giving the villa an architectural coherence. The timeless simplicity of the Shaker design means it will never go out of style and makes it a beautiful fit for any luxury apartment, villa or new build.
The Shaker collection represents everything Scandinavian design is known for: ageless quality, good craftmanship, simplicity and style.
