Outdoor kitchen in Edgbaston, Birmingham



Spitfire Homes’ heritage development in Edgbaston, a location widely considered to be one of the most desirable postcodes in Birmingham, aims at the luxury end of the market. The project has integrated the plot’s existing Weston House – the former residence of the Archbishop of Birmingham – with new build houses and apartments. Open Door Interiors, a company based in Warwickshire, were recruited to create iconic and individual rooms, incorporating a blend of both modern and traditional styles, to reflect the mix of properties. Throughout their designs, Open Door Interiors selectively chose a selection of furnishings and accessories, which, where possible, were British-made pieces that reflect the environment they feature in.

Tracy Baker, managing director of Open Door Interiors, did not hesitate to continue her carefully curated designs with the exterior of the property. The penthouse terrace of Weston House screams exclusive, boasting stunning views across one of the most picturesque areas of the city.

Sticking to the agenda of sourcing beautiful British-made furnishings, Tracy chose to work with us at Grillo to create a bespoke outdoor kitchen that could be configured to fit into the available space. The layout includes an integrated barbecue and fridge. It was imperative that the barbecue featured was electric, in order to comply with strict health and safety regulations, and we were able to meet these specifications without compromising the sleek, stylish and modern design. By pairing our kitchen with a comfortable seating area, Open Door Interiors has created the optimal social hub for enjoying food and drinks in the evening sun.
