Contemporary Cotswold house

Contemporary Cotswold house designed by Abitalia

Abitalia have recently completed this not so stereotypical Cotswold house - a stunning balance between refined contemporary details and the organic materiality of the stone. Abitalia’s involvement in the house over looking Cheltenham; included the designing and installation of the kitchen, utility kitchen, bathrooms and wardrobes, as well as supplying the stone flooring.

This bespoke kitchen by Effeti was handmade in Tuscany finally delivering an outstanding, timeless finish. The kitchen being left with a lacquer custom finish leaving a shine and subtle reflection of light throughout the kitchen creates a contemporary living space for our client fit for cooking and entertainment. The main feature of this stunning kitchen is the marrone stone cladding which completes the wall. Our clients kitchen was installed with the complete set of Gaggenau appliances. The beautiful centre piece of this gleaming kitchen is of course designer Santambrogio glass table which seats 8 people as shown above and again creates space and light throughout the kitchen.

Dani Marmi’s flooring was fitted throughout the contemporary Cotswold house. The 20mm stone tiles sized 800x800 which are the Quarzite Marrone span across 200 square metres of the ground floor. The house as a final piece was left with a smooth and clean cut finish much like the tiles leaving a unique contemporary feel.

The exterior of the house magnifies the beauty of the surrounding area emphasising on the contemporary design of the house. The glass doors create peace and serenity inside and outside of the house leading you out onto the balcony where you can view the picturesque scenery in your own comfort. The contemporary outdoor furniture carries out the minimalistic design into the outdoors. Gandia Blasco’s ‘Flat’ collection of outdoor furniture which is available from Abitalia is now the centre piece of the balcony overlooking Cheltenham.

Designers are rarely given the privileged oppurtunity to work on such a high level project. When asked almost two years ago to produce the plans and design for this house we were delighted, as alongside the client we too are able to enjoy the feeling of accomplishment as the overall project was a beautiful addition to Ham Hill.

Quooker hot tap on display

Abitalia is a dealer for Quooker hot taps in Cheltenham

Abitalia is a retailer for Quooker boiling hot water taps in Cheltenham. The instant hot water tap has become an integral part to the modern kitchen. When Abitalia design a kitchen, by default we specify the incredibly practical boiling water tap. In addition, Abitalia install a Everpure Claris water filter system that provides purified water both to the Quooker and main kitchen tap. This simple attention to detail provides high quality water, not only for drinking, but also to supply integrated appliances like steam ovens and ice-making freezers.

Abitalia work with dedicated engineers that can advise on and install the best system for your requirements. Connecting up to five appliances with a single filter, plus the Quooker hot water tank, the cost is very competitive compared to bottled water or other filtration systems.

Our design studio in Cheltenham have the ‘Modern’ hot water tap from Quooker on display, with a working ‘Basic’ tap display nearby. If you are interested in having a Quooker tap installed in your new kitchen, or wish to retrospectively install one in your existing kitchen, contact our studio for more information
