Connemara Beach House
Polished Concrete Natural Finish Kitchen Island & Stove Surround
This project emphasises the integration with the natural landscape and the client’s desire to reflect a harmonious blend of aesthetics and functionality. The primary goal of seamlessly blending the house into its landscape is a testament to the thoughtfulness and sensitivity with which the design was approached. This integration ensures that the house becomes an organic part of its surroundings, enhancing the overall visual appeal and providing an immersive experience for its occupants.
The client’s requirements for a bright communal space highlights the importance of functional design. The integration of kitchen, dining, and living areas underscores the modern trend of open and inclusive living spaces. This layout not only encourages interaction but also caters to the practical needs of a contemporary family lifestyle.
The utilisation of a natural finish concrete counter top and a concrete stove surround is a testament to the project’s commitment to embracing the elements of the natural environment. The use of concrete resonates with the rugged beauty of the beach and the raw, organic textures found in the landscape. The natural finish further accentuates the authenticity of the materials, creating a seamless connection between the built environment and its surroundings.
The decision to incorporate polished concrete kitchen worktops and concrete skirtings demonstrates an understanding of both aesthetics and durability. Polished concrete not only offers a sleek and modern appearance but also withstands the demands of daily use, making it an ideal choice for high-traffic areas like kitchens. The continuation of concrete skirtings throughout the house reinforces a cohesive design language.
Architect Patrick Lloyd at Peter Legge Architects perfectly executed the client brief and showcases the importance of teamwork and expertise in achieving a successful outcome. This collaboration with JCK Kitchens and our team, ensures that the design vision is translated into reality with precision and finesse.
