In addition to updating a dilapidated and out-of-date kitchen, Charlotte and David were keen to create a minimalist space that brought the outside in through the use of specialist glass splashbacks
. "We needed a new kitchen that was ultra-functional, visually pleasing, spacious and in sympathy with surroundings," said Charlotte. "The challenge for Josh and Dmitri was to provide splashbacks that were not only functional, but met our requirements for a seamless transition between the kitchen and bamboo garden outside."
The glass splashbacks needed to wrap around a new 3-metre picture window and not only provide functional outcomes, but create the appearance of the outside coming inside - so making the kitchen and outdoor bamboo garden appear to be one.
As part of this, they needed to minimise visible joins and angles between glass sheets and where required, blend or mitre them so the transition between glass sheets was almost invisible.
