Kingsbridge Terrace is part of the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham framework. Comprised of 27 two and three bedroom maisonettes and three bedroom houses available to buy through shared ownership. The development is aimed at creating affordable housing for people who are currently working or living in the borough of Barking & Dagenham.
After a competitive tender process the joinery were thrilled to win the work to supply all 27 kitchens and 30 bathrooms for all four blocks.
Working in partnership with award winning, urban planning practice Allies and Morrison, we were tasked with procuring affordable but durable materials, that were both simple but stylish.
Using a cashmere paint on the kitchen doors to bring warmth to the apartments. We built the kitchens using MDF wood with a melamine back. Finishing with a PVC mixed matt and gloss paint with metallic BA handles.
Wheelchair access kitchen
One of the apartments that we were working on was a wheelchair access kitchen. This came fully loaded with an adjustable rise and fall sink and hob. We also equipped the property with a side opening oven, le mons corner storage unit, and an adjustable larder shelving unit.
Being one of the first wheelchair access kitchens that we had worked on we were determined to make sure that we had covered every eventuality to make the space as comfortable for the occupant as possible.
