The result of a collaboration between Cantilever Interiors and DesignOffice, this new kitchen (titled the Tableau) was part of a recent whole home renovation in Melbourne’s Albert Park. Home to developers Ross and Pauline Troon of Milieu, the stylish space features a dark, slick palette that is complemented by a gorgeous self-watering green wall that forms the room’s stunning view.
“It’s all about extending the space out from the inside but bringing the outside in too. I love how the wall’s colour changes from season to season. Ultimately, I think it’s a nice detail – bringing nature into the space,” says Travis Dean, co-founder of Cantilever Interiors who explains that the original 1980’s-era kitchen had great potential but needed a major refresh in both aesthetics and function.
Green wall aside, it’s the lovely curved details that really elevate this kitchen and are unique to its design. “The Tableau is our latest kitchen system and it was designed in collaboration with DesignOffice. It’s based on free-standing pieces of furniture that once grouped together form a complete kitchen,” says Travis. Lovely furniture details feature in the space – the curved edges and bespoke ‘loop’ style handles really do give it a unique feel.
The kitchen also features an enviable array of Gaggenau appliances including two ovens, a coffee machine, induction cooktop, grill, rangehood, fridge/freezer and deep fryer. The bespoke sink is paired with a Phoenix tap, Zip mixer and Insinkerator.
Another standout area, and something of a Cantilever Interiors design signature, is the kitchen’s open shelving that provides a wonderful spot for personalisation. “We always try and bring in open shelving. It’s nice to have a space in which the client can add their own individual touches,” says Travis.
