Within a larger renovation by architect Colin Hopkins, the K2 Kitchen was utilised for the four by five-metre kitchen layout in the home of a professional chef. It’s a unique project that balances influences from both an industrial and residential point of view, that on first impression resembles a commercial kitchen layout, separated into three galleys.
The finishes that characterise this kitchen are a combination of veneer with a water-based finish, two-pack paint fronts, a marble benchtop with classic Cantilever open-mitred box and a Carrara marble benchtop. The solid timber handles run the entire length of the veneer doors and accentuate their presence. These visual cues mirror the rest of the house, seamlessly integrating the architectural language of a classic redbrick Victorian House.
With the resident heavily involved in the project, the architectural collaboration between Colin Hopkins and Cantilever culminates as a fluid home, with a natural flow of light, balanced in colour and material palette with a touch of luscious greenery. Ultimately, the design solution is a dedicated space to create memorable food experiences in a newly designed, comfortable and inviting kitchen.Cantilever Interiors cantileverinteriors.com Photography by Martina Gemmola abc
