Description

Detail in Contemporary Kitchen Design

Detail in Contemporary Kitchen Design features over 30 kitchen designs from around the world, each created by a notable architect for a specific residence. Arranged into chapters according to the dominant material usedstone, timber, and steeleach design is accompanied by an image of the whole house, placing it in context and providing a flavor of the general design style, clear photographs of the kitchen itself, and a floor plan showing its relation to the other spaces within the house.

Detailed photographs and architectural drawings show the arrangement and construction of the kitchens, and sections and elevations reveal the construction details of fitted units and joinery. These drawings have been specially created to a consistent style and to a set number of scales for easy comparison. Dimensions are included as well as model details of all the units and appliances, with suppliers' information so that these can be easily sourced.

A selection of insightful case studies include interviews with clients, designers, and manufacturers and provide an overview of the whole process of commissioning and creating a contemporary bespoke kitchen. An invaluable reference for practicing architects, interior designers, and students, this book is also an informative and inspirational guide for anyone who is considering commissioning a high-quality kitchen for their own home.
