This classic house from the fifties is found on a quiet residential road on the outskirts of the Copenhagen neighbourhood Frederiksberg. Before the present owners moved in, the house undertook a massive renovation. Among others, this included a new placement of the kitchen area. What earlier functioned as the corridor between the original house and an extension, has thus now become the kitchen.
Brdr. Reebergs Vej Kitchen
Oxidized oak and brass
What used to be the dead spot of the house has now given room to a large kitchen. A kitchen that both on the floor plan and in everyday life serves as the heart of the home.
The back of the kitchen is designed with a long floor-to-ceiling cabinet wall. This contains an integrated refrigerator, wine refrigerator, oven and a pocket-door solution. In front of the cabinet wall, a kitchen island has been installed with hot plates and washbasin. As the kitchen extends over what used to be several rooms, we have adapted both cabinet wall and kitchen island to the ceiling and floor respectively. The cabinets are adjusted in height so that they follow the ceiling’s edge all the way. Also, in the parts of the kitchen where there are almost three meters to the ceiling. This gives a nice, continuous expression, where the dimensions and kitchen design of the room are integrated together.
The kitchen island extends over 3 meters and is made in a matching oxidized oak with a Pietra Grey marble tabletop. At one end, the kitchen island becomes an integrated part of the dining room with a seating area and room for bar stools. The other end slightly protrudes the living area. This has created a successful and natural contact between the kitchen, dining room and living room areas. As an extra finesse, this kitchen has brass inlay in our signature handles. A neat detail that speaks to the materials of the washbasin, kitchen tap and overhead light in the kitchen.
