The CENA Mixed Materials outdoor kitchen can be crafted in one of four carefully-designed layouts. These layouts, in our professional opinion, are the best tried and tested designs for an outdoor kitchen. By having an understanding of a professional kitchen workflow, we ensure that the person using the kitchen spends less time walking and more time cooking thanks to the placement of features in relative locations.
Using key design fundamentals such as counter height and depth CENA ensures the kitchen feels natural and ergonomic. Personal choice is still incredibly important so the kitchen materials and finishes are still completely customisable. One of CENA’s overriding principles is that the chef gets to enjoy the party too, so our designers have allowed for a free-standing kitchen unit that can either face the guests or the reverse.
2400mm Straight run with an 2000mm return (either left or right hand)
The main module remains the grill and a secondary unit to house sink, fridge, burner, bin, etc or a combination thereof.
The return can either house more features and storage, or simply be a free-floating counter top to chop, chat, lean and enjoy your surroundings.
One of our American grill units will dominate a 1200mm cabinet so by introducing a secondary cabinet we can offer an array of additional features, and/ or a larger preparation or social surface.
The secondary cabinet can either free float and simply provide more counter top space, or you can make more of the space and house a sink and a fridge, a side burner and a fridge or a side burner and a sink (although this latter option would leave no standing space.
The grill unit has ample space underneath to house a gas bottle alongside, crockery and cookware.
All the components listed here come as standard, they can be removed but not relocated to another location in the unit.

Wood is an incredibly versatile material, offering a choice of colours and textures while ensuring your CENA kitchen blends seamlessly with the natural environment of your garden. CENA sources premium English oak, Sapele and Iroko (a popular replacement for ever-scarcer teak) to craft outdoor kitchens for a wide range of tastes.
Our metal kitchen range allows for precision of engineering that cannot always be replicated with natural materials, making it the ideal foundation for a CENA outdoor kitchen. CENA craftsmen take either raw aluminium, stainless steel or powder-coated aluminium and apply CAD designs and CNC machining to create replicating components. These are hand-crafted into modular cabinets that will stand the test of time, no matter what the weather conditions outside throw at the kitchen.
Brushed aluminium provides a contemporary finish, while stainless steel mirrors the most professional kitchens and powder-coated aluminium can be finished in any colour.
Available in a range of colours, contact us for further information.
