When the owners of this mid-century Melbourne abode were looking to upgrade their kitchen, rather than installing a generic, modern design they decided to complement the origins of their home instead. Combining timber, marble, stone and beautiful mid-century details, this kitchen is a show-stopper in our view. What a stunner!
“The kitchen is a wonderful example of Cantilever’s intelligent K2 kitchen system and features clean, minimalist lines that perfectly complement a mid-century home while bringing the addition of modern comforts,” says Travis Dean of Cantilever Design.
The design features a beautiful combination of materials including Blackbutt timber veneer, white two-pack cabinetry, a stone benchtop and a stunning marble splash back. Perhaps the standout feature though is the beautiful custom-made solid timber handles that are very much in keeping with the mid-century origins of the home.
Not just extremely good-looking, the kitchen is highly functional too. “Just like a classic piece of mid- century furniture, the kitchen is designed with ergonomics in mind and functionality is another hero of the design. Every element of the high-quality joinery has a purpose – from the Cantilever Design appliance cupboard to the pull-out tandem pantry and the elegant integrated open shelving,” says Travis.
“We reconfigured the kitchen to create a better connection to the adjacent dining area through the addition of a window in the wall between the two spaces. This open area acts as a servery which is another nod to mid-century design.”
“Cantilever’s clever K2 Kitchen System provides the flexibility and design sensitivity required to modernise the home of these mid-century devotees. Timeless and sustainable, it’s the perfect fit,” says Travis.
