Kitchen of the Week: A Sleek Modern Kitchen with a Hippie Heart
We all try to make lower impact choices here at Remodelista, so it was with a particular thrill that we recently stumbled upon Sustainable Kitchens, a Bristol, England-based kitchen design and manufacturing company that gives priority to ethical materials. Its basic principles – a dependence on solid wood from responsible sources and non-toxic materials; an emphasis on locally sourced products; and a commitment to reducing waste and replanting trees – grew out of founder Sam Shaw’s interest in sustainable forestry (he has a degree in environmental management) and his passion for woodworking.
What we particularly admire about Sustainable Kitchens projects is that they are both eco and concerned with design. Take this London townhouse kitchen designed by the firm in collaboration with architects from Conibere Phillips. It is housed in a bright new addition to the house. And while the carpentry is clean, modern and minimalist, its heart beats green.
Let’s take a walk.
