An open plan kitchen and utility using polished perla beige marble. A very large island surface was required, with sweeping arcs and pop-up sockets and extractor. See below for a picture of the pop-up socket lid which was matched in the stone. The extractor rises from the surface on motorised rails. A splashback completely covers the sink wall up to the wall cabinets with the wall sockets embedded. The utility has a large sill and upstands.
The pop-up sockets are by S-box. Visit their site to see it in action. We created a snug fitting lid for the box which automatically rises from the surface when needed.
There is a joint in the island but it is very hard to spot even when you get close. Often islands are done in one piece but in this case typical slabs do not come in a large enough format, and next would be the problem of getting it through doors and into final position.
The joint runs from the corner of the hob and parallel to its short side. Also in shot is the concealed extractor.
