Pangbourne Country House

The Client Brief:

This is a large country estate in Pangbourne. We had already refurbished the clients holiday home in Mudeford and they loved the Quooker boiling water tap we had specified for the kitchen so much that they asked me to see if I could incorporate one, together with new worktops in the kitchen of their primary residence in Pangbourne.

The Designers Challenge

By Andrew Rizza, Design Director, Dream Design

Spatial Design

As soon as I entered the kitchen, it was apparent to me that it was positioned in the wrong area of the property. One would enter the kitchen from the impressive galleried entrance hall through a pair of arched glazed doors and have to walk through the middle of the kitchen to the dining and lounge spaces and the separate additional lounge, which was never used, even though this lounge enjoyed the best views across the beautiful walled garden from the ground floor.

After considering my ideas the clients agreed that we could take down the wall to the separate lounge and re–locate the kitchen in this area. The chimneybreast that housed the existing Aga could then become a fireplace adjacent to the new dining table position and the lounge area could move into the orangery.

The clients chose Siematic S2 furniture in white high gloss lacquer with white Silestone work services as displayed in our showroom. To give warmth we specified an oak floor throughout and a bespoke Andrew James breakfast bar in Wenge.
