A Sunninghill 'Studio CK' kitchen

A film star’s house?

Not quite. But a very unique house with a fantastic history: in the 1970s, it starred in the cult film of the time, Rollerball, starring James Caan of ‘The Godfather’ fame.

The client had purchased it recently with a view to remodelling the whole property from its run down state and retaining the architectural heritage and contemporary feel but using traditional and naturally eco friendly materials.

A bespoke Studio CK contemporary Shaker style was the perfect match.

We designed not only the kitchen but also the utility and mud room by working closely with the client to respect the preservation restraints on this important building.

It was a while before we could cut some wood as this restoration was extensive but we soon got going with three separate, stunning rooms, each with a very unique scheme and identity.

The client had chosen a Wolf range cooker and hood with the French door Sub Zero fridge freezer.

The dishwashers were Miele with Fisher Paykel drawers to support. A microwave was housed in a glorious breakfast pantry, or as we affectionately call them: a ‘Tea & Toast’ cabinet, and a mini kitchen was added to one side in the vicinity of the doors to the garden.

The handles were in keeping with the contemporary Shaker style: we especially designed some very tasteful, minimalistic and exclusive turned oak knobs.

The paint for the kitchen was Farrow and Ball London Clay 244 with full stave oak worktops and an inset drainer in a Moleanos limestone with a Perrin & Rowe Belfast sink and Kohler tap and hand rinses.

A bespoke Studio CK beauty for a very unique house. Beautifully simple, simply beautiful!
