It was pretty much a total renovation of one of the most known townhouses, known as Kartoffelrækkerne, in Copenhagen. It took more or less 1,5 year to complete. The townhouses dates back more than 100 years, inspired by the townhouses in England. Everything except the original floors got modernized with a new and improved layout.
The owners returned to Copenhagen after living in London for many years, wanted to combine the British and International style with a Danish twist, like the very iconic Danish design CH24 chairs around the dining table.
It was important to keep the overall kitchen design classic modern, so it kept with the character and age of the house. The kitchen is mainly smoked oak with framed fronts, brass fixtures, lamps and knobs, which really creates that modern tradition look. To get that exotic and international twist the Italian marble was introduced on the counter tops. To optimize the relatively small kitchen, they choose a bigger island big enough to house all appliances and eliminate as many cabinets along the walls as possible.
