How Brandt Design brought bespoke living to a brand-new development

We find out how luxury interior design specialist Brandt Design collaborated with Peter Barber Architects, New Granville LPP, Sherrygreen Homes and One Housing Group to bring bespoke kitchens to a tree-lined development in Granville Gardens.

The Granville Gardens development is formed around a network of small residential streets close to Hampstead Heath, with a pair of curving crescents, two community gardens and a main street through the centre that reconnects Mortimer Close in the south with Granville Road in the north. At either end, the street is formed into a spectacular double crescent of 132 terraced homes and apartments with a tree-lined community garden at its heart.

Each open-plan kitchen has been designed and installed by the expert team at Brandt Design. Contemporary Urban Furniture in timeless white was specified for the main kitchen cabinets, which are stylish and naturally space saving thanks to the handleless design with coloured profiles, and slab doors and drawer fronts.

When designing for the larger properties, the Brandt Design team decided to introduce a second furniture finish for added depth and warmth and chose a deep grain wood effect in fashionable light grey oak.

Moving into the wash zone, a highly durable Alaska stainless-steel sink by Reginox, which is known for being an easy clean, durable option perfectly co-ordinates with a Charente Modern single lever tap in Chrome with quad-style spout from Reginox.

Premium black appliances also feature throughout the series of apartments and homes at Granville Gardens, and the Brandt Design team chose to fully integrate a range of key appliances including a twinset of built-in steam ovens, along with a built-in microwave, electric oven, hob with extractor, dishwasher, and freestanding coffee machine.

Integrated lighting throughout the kitchen creates a well-lit and inviting space that is enjoyable to cook and spend time in.

“The appeal of every home is enhanced by our ability to maximise space and light," says Julia Steadman, commercial director at Brandt Design. "Complementary quartzite work surfaces help to reflect even more light around the kitchen, as well as provide ample space to prepare and cook food… there’s even room to accommodate a 3-person breakfast bar in several of the properties! To provide contrast against the stark white kitchen furniture, we decided to use chrome and black as our accent colours across the fixtures and fittings, making the trio of kitchen counter stools the perfect addition in black metal.”

For the height of home entertaining, a modern l-shaped bench seat makes way for a round dining table that seats up to eight guests on a deluxe tan leather banquette. And for those working from home, it’s easy to simply take advantage of the discreet desk area hidden between the primary living and dining space.

“Working on this greenfield project has been an exciting journey for the entire team at Brandt Design, helping to transform undeveloped land into a thriving urban area just outside of central London. With the need to deliver on spacious design, we knew we needed to introduce a series of kitchen designs, which combine the very best in product innovation and home ergonomics for the lifestyle-conscious homeowner," says Julia.

“We were delighted to lend our expertise to support this new community and play our part in raising the standards of London new build developments for the next generation, because we believe that beautiful kitchens should be available to everyone,” she adds.
