What is the Grillo BBQ Island Concept?

The Grillo BBQ island is a simple and compact design, comprising a BBQ which is integrated into the worksurface, opposite a bar height table with matching iroko barstools.

Why does it work so well?

It’s super important with any outdoor kitchen design to ensure the social side of outdoor entertaining is not lost. When we launched the company, our overriding vision was to bring people together around food and flames. So instead of having the BBQ tucked away in the corner, we wanted to bring guests and host together, to enable the socialising and cooking to happen in one place.

And what better way to achieve this by having bar stools integrated into the kitchen. This creates an inviting place to perch and enjoy a drink, whilst watching the action!

BTR schemes / Roof terraces

Roof terraces are now becoming a fairly standard feature for many city buildings, including residential BTR schemes. Properly developers are looking for ways to really enhance the roof-top experience, and maximise their impact. Having access to shared barbecues is a great way to let residents host friends and family for unforgettable parties up in the skies!

The Grillo island is perfect for this application too, with its freestanding construction needing no foundations. Electric grills can be incorporated to ensure things are safe and practical, and that the BBQ’s meet any health and safety regulations.
