Philosophy

A UK4 KITCHEN IS COMPOSED LIKE A FIVE-STAR MENU


A truly delicious dining experience is also a feast for the eyes. A meal looking appetising is part of its culinary appeal. So the kitchen helps do the cooking in more ways than one. An old adage confirms that love begins in the stomach; a fact that brings the gastronomic and the sensual even closer together. Aesthetic adventurousness, a love of food and hospitality are the three pillars that UK4 bases the unique designs of its stylish kitchens on.

Ulrike Krages

I have been designing kitchens since 2002. The kitchen is the social focal point; the “warm tummy” of a home, and far more than just the place where the cooking happens. The sensory experience of warmth and well-being is what I call “Urban Comfort”; a term that paraphrases UK4’s demand on itself to make kitchens where family, guests and friends feel right at home from the moment they enter.

Jan Kratzin

“Does the kitchen merely serve to prepare delicacies, or has it long become a sumptuous part of our lifestyle? In our hand-crafted kitchens, not only lobster and scallops come together, but also family, friends and guests”. In my position as managing partner, I have been growing UK4 on the foundation of Ulrike Krages’ philosophy since 2011. Together we work on achieving the best possible expression of our customers’ way of life in functionally perfect and aesthetically unique kitchens.

The photo on the cookbook makes you want to tear it out and scoff down the page. But you need experience and expertise to get your version to taste as good as the recipe suggests. Kitchens are like that too. They are also the result of perfect planning, state-of-the-art kitchen technology and a love of detail.

Madeline Merten

As a place of gathering and communication, the kitchen plays an increasingly important role. Not for nothing, the well-known and ever-popular “table-stays-table” talks take place in the kitchen. Sensual materials, craftsmanship details and a sophisticated overall concept characterize our kitchens and create “Urban Comfort”.

Processes

First you think about what your guests might enjoy. Then, while strolling around the market an extraordinary menu slowly takes shape in your imagination. The idea is born; now you just need all the technical prerequisites to make a delicious success of it. The creation of a UK4 kitchen is a similar process – from gaining a feel for what you want in the first interview, to photos of your space situation, to 3-D animations and the testing of the structural options.
