Fyrresvinget Kitchen

Quarter-cut oak veneer.
This kitchen in oak is designed for a classic Mid-century modern villa with flat rooftop and large windows sections from floor to ceiling. Features characteristic of the architecture of that time. When the current owners moved in, not much had been done to update the interior of the house. A newer kitchen was installed back in the 90s. But a kitchen that did not naturally fall into the architecture of the house. With the new kitchen and a few other interior solutions, the couple has created a modern and aesthetic villa, where the time-typical characteristics of the building style are preserved.

We wanted a kitchen that had the same atmosphere as we imagined the house’s original kitchen had.

The wall between the former kitchen and the dining room has been torn down. This has created an open space with light coming in from both sides. The kitchen itself is built in a U-shape in the former kitchen space. A high cabinet wall houses an integrated refrigerator, oven and a specially adapted wine rack and bookshelf for full use of the space. Towards the dining room, the demolition of the wall has created the opportunity for a wide tabletop that both provides good workspace and opens up for seating at the kitchen table.

The kitchen is built-in oak on both fronts and tabletops – veneer for the kitchen fronts and solid oak for the tabletop. A choice of material that fits the architecture of the house well. And also, a choice of material that the owners were adamant about from the start. The result is an elegantly cohesive kitchen-dining space with a clear division of kitchen room and dining room, and where proportions and materials are matched to the architecture of the house.
