This Frame Kitchen was built in a British-inspired terraced house in Copenhagen. At the end of the 19th century, several enclaves of terraced houses were built in response to a need for better housing facilities for the growing working class of Copenhagen.

Originally built as small apartments, the majority of the houses have since been converted into larger single-family houses. This house was like a blank canvas in an older frame. By tearing out walls, floors, electricity, pipes and stairs, it was completely emptied during renovation, leaving only four walls and a roof. When you opened the front door, you could see the roof three floors above you. One step forward and you would fall into the basement. With a relatively small floor plan, the challenge was to create a spacious kitchen that did not take up too much space in the daily family life.

With the kitchen located on the ground floor, we wanted to create a kitchen that would light up the room. A Silestone tabletop and a tall Colour Cabinet with glass door close to the window were chosen as these both reflect sunlight from outside. The family of four who moved into the house chose a Frame Kitchen with Limestone on the outside, Terracotta on the inside and polished chrome handles.
