Commodore Kitchens Reaches New Heights with South Quay Plaza Contract


Commodore Kitchens has been awarded the Kitchen design, fabrication and installation package on Berkeley Homes’ Flagship South Quay Plaza development in East London.

Designed by world-renowned architects Foster + Partners, South Quay Plaza is a high quality residential development that will play a pivotal role in revitalising the historic Docklands around Canary Wharf. Rising to 220m tall and 68 stories high, the development will be one of the tallest residential towers in Europe. Designed to stand at a 45 degree angle to the South dock, the apartments will benefit from stunning dual aspect views across the City and over the 2.6 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens.

Building on a long-term and highly successful relationship with the Berkeley Group, Commodore Kitchens has engaged with the project’s design team for more than two years, advising on product specification, finishes and design features. This collaborative approach has enabled the final design to complement the architectural design of the iconic development.

The kitchens will feature premium, bespoke matt-lacquered handless units, quartz worktops and down stands in Silestone by Cosentino, with glass wall cladding and high quality Siemens appliances. They will reinforce the overall design aim of the development to provide elegant and sustainable living spaces and will be a key selling point to attract prospective residents.

Commodore Kitchens’ design director, Darren Mahoney, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded this important new project with Berkeley Homes. This is a high profile development and will add to our impressive portfolio of quality schemes within London and beyond.  We look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with Berkeley Group and working on this flagship development.”

With the construction of the development well underway, the kitchen installations will commence in autumn 2018.
