Alice Poole has lived in her house in Bedford Park since 1986 when she bought the first and second floors of an unmodernised semi-detached Grade II listed Norman Shaw property. Alice first converted the house into two flats and then, in 1995, restored the property back to a family house when she acquired the ground floor flat. Over the years Alice has altered and extended the house and her most recent project has been to extend the rear of the property by a small amount enabling Alice to replan and redesign the kitchen. Alice returned to her first kitchen design and used a sunray theme, contemporising the kitchen units with a mixture of white, stainless steel and whitened maple where the grain of the wood follows the line of the sunrays. The design also features stained glass and the Amazonite worktop on the island is spectacular.
Alice's kitchen has won the British Design and Manufacturing Award of the Designer Kitchen and Bathroom Awards 2018.
