Located within an expansive property in La Mancha, in the province of Albacete, this residence stands out thanks to the material warmth of this wooden kitchen and the interplay of intersecting volumes that further emphasize the strong and pure lines of its architecture.
The kitchen, a result of the collaboration with our Spanish partner Valcucine Madrid | Estudio Kroma, occupies a spacious area of over 70 m2, connecting the large living area to the outdoors. It is surrounded by wide sliding glass doors that fill the space with ample natural light, seamlessly integrating with the outdoor terrace and pool area.
The kitchen design consists of three main blocks:
The first is comprised of a spacious area with columns finished in warm Olmo Tattile wood, functionally incorporating a refrigerator, a wine cellar, and ovens within a cabinet with retractable doors.
In the second area, adjacent to the columns, stands the special element of Air Logica in Black Matt Glass, enriched by our remarkable V-Motion mechanism, which further emphasizes the uniqueness of the space. The composition is completed with the elegant suspended Genius Loci drawer, finished in Titanium.
The central area of the kitchen is dominated by a large Genius Loci island, featuring the same finishes as base units. Extending from the island is a raised breakfast bar in Olmo Tattile, communicating an extraordinary sense of lightness and elegance to the entire space.
Despite its considerable length of over 8 linear meters, the substantial volumes achieved with the breakfast bar, the Genius Loci drawer contribute to creating a remarkable sense of lightness and functionality.
The combination of elements that define this kitchen meets the fundamental request of the villa's owners: to transform the kitchen into a space for informal and convivial meals.
