Commodore Kitchens brings Style to the South Bank for Bellway
Commodore Kitchens has completed the design, fabrication and installation of 320 high specification kitchens for Bellway Homes new flagship residential development in Nine Elms, The Residence.
The Residence is a luxurious development of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments on London’s South Bank with enviable river views. The former industrial area is currently undergoing a major transformation into a thriving residential and business district. Inspired by the architecture of New York, The Residence is a standout scheme in this regeneration area and the apartments’ contemporary specification boasts high quality appliances and furnishings, including custom-designed, quality kitchens.
Commodore Kitchens designed and manufactured the bespoke kitchen units, which provide a sense of luxury and quality. The units are handle-less with high gloss, soft close doors and drawers and under cabinet LED strip lights. The kitchens feature Silestone work surfaces with matching full height splashbacks and include a range of high specification, integrated appliances including oven, microwave, touch control induction hob, wine cooler and fridge-freezer.
Buyers were given the opportunity to choose from a palette of three kitchen colours and had the option to upgrade appliances from AEG to Miele. Providing the buyer with the opportunity to choose was an important part of the overall brief, enabling buyers to tailor their property to their personal taste and preference.
A Bellway spokesperson comments: “The Residence is one of our flagship developments and the kitchens play a crucial role in attracting prospective buyers. The capability of Commodore Kitchens to manufacture and install bespoke units, which further enhance the high-specification of the development has been essential. Their input during the planning and design stages has helped us to meet the aspirations of our buyers and allow them an element of choice over the final look and feel of their new kitchen. Consistently high levels of quality have been achieved and the completed kitchens complement the overall exclusivity of the development.”
Commodore Kitchens’ design director, Darren Mahoney commented: “This is a large development across 4 individual residential blocks, the tallest of which is 19 storeys. We have worked very closely with Bellway to sequence the manufacture and installation of the kitchens to meet the critical timescales of the programme.
“The scheme continues a long-standing partnership between Bellway and Commodore Kitchens and builds on our understanding of the elegant interior style the developer requires for high prestige projects like this. We’re delighted that our turnkey approach to design, production and installation has, once again, contributed to the success of a high-end Bellway development.”
