An outdoor version of the Abimis Ego kitchen plays a starring role at this contemporary home.
The owner, an architect and proprietor of a designer furniture store, designed this seafront villa not only as a holiday home, but also as a study and showroom. A laboratory of ideas, full of objects of design and vintage furnishings.
A place where the owner can relax as well as being an endless source of inspiration for his customers and their future creations…
This modern, two-storey contemporary villa sits along the stunning beachfront in Palma de Mallorca.
It is here, far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, with the sound of the sea in the background, that this architect adores inviting friends, guests and numerous clients over for lunch or dinner. Thanks to the mild climate and large courtyard surrounding the villa, these convivial meals are almost always held outside.
This is why the owner, a serious gourmet and lover of Mediterranean cuisine, wanted to include an outdoor kitchen in his garden.
An Ego kitchen by Abimis was the perfect solution
The owner chose an outdoor Ego kitchen by Abimis, made entirely from stainless steel,
and for a very good reason. In fact, the architect had already included Abimis kitchens in many of his projects for clients, promising himself that he would also install one here, at his home-study in Palma. He wanted one for the main kitchen, a large and bright room with plays on different shades of white. For this room, however, the owners went for a kitchen from the Atelier line. A bespoke island model made from orbitally polished stainless steel, designed to fully meet the owners’ every need.
An Ego kitchen, on the other hand, was the preferred option for the garden. This range stands out for its compact and minimal design, ergonomic recessed sole, flush doors with hidden hinges and rounded corners. Ego kitchens are also made entirely from AISI 304 stainless steel. This material is not only hygienic and easy to clean but is also particularly resistant to wear and tear and weather conditions.
The architect wanted to install the kitchen underneath the portico, where it would be protected from the island’s typical blustery wind. This is also where he chose to include the outdoor dining area, enabling him to personally entertain his guests at the same time as cooking for them.
This simple yet complete outdoor kitchen has a linear design, with the worktop featuring a built-in cooking area and sink. The structure is divided into large drawers, storage compartments and refrigerator drawers. Neither the worktop nor the various compartments of this kitchen have any joints, making the entire structure easier to clean as well as avoiding any crevices that may otherwise allow dust or dirt to build up.
Design and performance
By choosing an outdoor Ego kitchen by Abimis, the architect not only wanted a functional accessory but was also looking for high performance. Above all, he chose a designer kitchen. A modern-day stainless-steel sculpture that seamlessly blends in with the contemporary and minimal style of the rest of the home. An object of design that sits perfectly among its surroundings: the modern infinity pool, the adjacent Tulip table by Eero Saarinen and the living area leading into the garden through a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door.
