As much as I love a good night out in a fancy restaurant, there is something far more intimate about entertaining at home.
After a long day in the office or dealing with contractors on site, cooking can be quite therapeutic, especially (and I am not ashamed to admit it) when there is a helper on hand to aid with the clean up. And this love of cooking and entertaining is reflected in our kitchen designs where aesthetics are never sacrificed for functionality. We design kitchens for cooking but of course with the DI panache.
So it is, perhaps, of little surprise that we have once more been shortlisted for the best kitchen design at the International Design and Architecture Awards.
This kitchen was my personal favourite of all the ones we worked on last year. It was designed for a family with four young children and a dad who was an avid cook.
This is a family kitchen in every sense, truly the heart of the home.
