CVC Architecture - Maxtop Case Study


Maxtop has been selected by Conrad Cherniavsky at CVC Architecture, as part of recent project to extend and refurbish a neglected Victorian house that has previously been rented as a HMO (House of Multiple Occupancy) for many years.

A little bit about the product… Made from solid quartz, Maxtop offers all the benefits of natural stone. However, unlike heavy stone worktops, Maxtop’s unique honeycomb core makes it easier to handle and install.

We spoke with Conrad Cherniavsky to understand the brief of the project and why Maxtop was chosen.

Conrad said that his client wanted to create a bright open plan space for the kitchen and dining areas on a modest budget. The house has some stunning original features that the client wanted to restore and expose the raw material of, so it was essential that high quality materials were used. Maxtop fitted this brief perfectly!

Maxtop offered the quartz finish, without the full cost of a quartz worksurface. Thanks to the 4 various size options available from stock, there was minimal waste from both the gallery run and island run, helping to keep within budget guidelines. Conrad also commented that the thin 8mm edge that is created when installing an undermount sink was a bonus design feature that makes the worktop appear more elegant!

Maxtop allowed Conrad to meet the initial goals of the project and give the client a sophisticated high – end kitchen, without breaking the bank!
