Ancerl Studio Warms Up Super-Sleek Kitchen Design


Walnut, white oak and exposed brick come together with ultra-modern materials in this hideaway kitchen

These farmhouse feels by Ancerl Studio prove that a functional, contemporary kitchen design need not be clinical. Seasoned with kitsch-free country accents in stone, steel, and wood, this inviting space doubles as an extension to the adjacent living room. The cooking area can be neatly tucked away behind sliding walnut doors, combining the rooms into a continuous 10-metre hall flowing into the rear yard through 3.5 metres of sliding framed glass.

Cinnamon tones throughout invoke a sense of comfort, coordinated between natural walnut cabinetry, stained white oak floors, and heritage brick that echoes the building’s exterior. The use of ultra-matte black counter-balances the earthen aspects of the room. Storage is solved by monolithic cabinetry in resin-based Fenix, chosen for its highly resistant and hygienic properties. Included in the dark decor are the pulley-inspired MTO pendants by Vesoi, linear pendants by Anony and open metal-plate shelving which showcases a harvest of knick-knackery.
