Grand Designs Project – Sydenham Hill, London

Corinne is a chef who loves to cook and entertain. Now the South Londoner is rustling up plans for a beautifully crafted, double kitchen home designed around her love of cooking. She’s found what she thinks is the perfect plot to take in sweeping views while enjoying an al fresco dinner with friends – a slither of garden down the side of the house she’s lived in for the last 24 years. Unusually for London, this wedge-shaped end of terrace plot is on a hill and surrounded by beautiful woodland. However, Corinne’s challenging site also sits within a strict conservation area, meaning a further series of tight restrictions, hurdles and headaches to overcome as construction gets underway.
Corrine contacted Bernard Arnull after falling in love with our Limestone sample that Simon at Architecturall had of ours from a previous project. After hearing Corinne’s story, we knew we wanted to help with her challenging project.
Lots of love for our tiles after Corrine shared a sneak peek on her Instagram, see more here:
Being a professional chef, Corinne chose only the best to ensure easy cooking & entertaining. The Limestone elevates the space beautifully.

The outside kitchen terrace also features a Limestone tile but in the Fiammata finish, suitable for the area.. This allows the inside to flow seamlessly to the outside.
