Bespoke Kitchens in Stunning Development Oxfordshire


Located in the heart of Henley-on-Thames Laureate Gardens is a prestige development of 34 contemporary and historic homes aimed at over 55’s based around the Grade II listed workhouse dating from 1790.

Langstaff Ellis created unique designs for each kitchen in the development and, as some of the homes were sold off-plan, we later created fully customised designs for six of the buyers

Each building presented challenges for the kitchen designers with very high specifications demanded by the developers and each home having its own unique dimensions.

In fulfilling the brief we were able to create spaces that enhanced the heritage features while creating contemporary open-plan living areas. For the historic buildings we based the designs around a shaker style in-frame product, while the new build apartments accommodate a minimalist modern design, taking into account the ergonomics of the spaces and the demographic of the residents.

Created to be liveable and used, the kitchens incorporate subtle under pelmet lighting, integrated fridge freezers, integrated waste systems, boiling water taps, oven stacks, spacious larder units and Bora down draught hobs in the islands.
