Once banished to the far corner of the house, the laundry is now being thoughtfully incorporated into the heart of the home with consideration to design, function – and style. Take a look at four favourite Cantilever laundry renovations from Whole Home Projects.
It goes without saying, Cantilever loves to make good, honest kitchens. What you didn’t know is that we've experienced some serious food cravings along the way! Today we're introducing a much-anticipated Kitchen Stories segment on cooking; featuring recipes with clients in Cantilever Kitchens.
Meet Voda Tap by Sussex Taps, the latest addition to the Cantilever Kitchen Systems accessories range. On the hunt for the perfect companion to our Sink & Board, we selected local manufacturer Sussex Taps for their quality, unique and fully customisable tapware.
Sussex Taps is a true local industry and maker of our latest tapware range. Established in 1997, Sussex create taps using rigorous methods pioneered and refined by the company. We recently visited the Sussex factory which is best described as a Willy Wonka Wonderland of brass and steel.
The owner of this lovely 70’s home came to us with a clear budget, tight timeframe and mission; to find a kitchen solution that would complement the architectural quality of the existing home, and to improve the function and flow of its small footprint.
The Kitchen is Cantilever’s first love, but we often lend our design and supply service to joinery for complete renovation projects, be it a kitchen and bathroom, or a whole home scope. There are many advantages of approaching the joinery components of a renovation as a set, including economy of scale across materials and intersecting trades, along with consistency of service, finish and design detail.
The greatest misconception about small kitchens is that they are always cramped, lack storage and work space. Cantilever believe that the size of a space has no bearing on its potential, and appreciate the design challenge of a small scale Kitchen! Compact Kitchen design requires flexible thinking – not a shrunk down version of a full-size design.
Sustainability is a complicated beast. As an Australian manufacturer, Cantilever’s mission to create enduring, sustainable kitchens is an ever-evolving one. We consider the principles of ‘designing for longevity’ a key strategy toward improving the sustainability of our products.
HIP V. HYPE brings a holistic approach to design led development projects. Focussed on the key pillars of Development, Design, Sustainability and Research, Liam Wallis [founder of HIP V. HYPE.] brings a robust, philosophical edge to the projects they pursue.
As regularly as possible the Cantilever Team wander out into the world and take some time to engage with our industry of makers, designers and manufacturers. We recently visited Anchor Ceramics; a design studio in Melbourne’s inner north.
When the owners of a beautiful Melbourne mid-century home were looking to renovate their kitchen, they wanted to maintain the integrity of the era while bringing it up to speed with modern lifestyles. As great enthusiasts of mid-century design, we were excited to work on this project, which turned out to be a dream job.
The Home Team is one of channel 10’s most popular home renovation lifestyle shows. It is hosted by Leah McLeod, who has an extensive media career and is passionate about renovation and design and co-hosted by Anthony Scott, an award winning landscaper and designer. We were thrilled when they asked us to feature in an upcoming episode.
When great design combines with an artistic mind, the results can be inspiring. So when we recently heard about the lucky winner of our Triple R radio prize, we were confident our Wanda Shelving System had found a wonderful new home and would go on to serve its purpose in style.
Coffee and design have a lot in common. When done well, they can make life so much easier and bring a little lift to your day. Two of the best have recently come together – our Wanda Shelving Systems are now a feature of Padre Coffee stores in Brunswick East, South Melbourne and Noosa.
The Black and White extension to a post-war semi-detached home in Mont Albert is a testimony to design collaboration and the opportunities for integration when design is considered at a macro and micro scale throughout the process.
Cantilever was commissioned by Banco Group to design a functional, small footprint kitchen for a development of 6 apartments suspended strikingly above Mars Gallery, in the Melbourne inner-city suburb of Windsor.
Built in 1951 this Ivanhoe East gem retained many of its fantastic original features, however the original kitchen – tucked into a dark, disconnected corner - was not one of them. Having seen us in an eco-minded architectural magazine, our clients Andrew and Sam approached us with a straight-forward brief to renovate their existing kitchen.
The Petra St project beautifully marries the coastal ease of a Western Australian summer, and the egalitarian and eco-mindedness of our kitchen designs. This Fremantle workers cottage has been lovingly transformed by the client, incorporating a strong Scandinavian aesthetic with a focus on all things Mid-Century. Clad in black weatherboards, framed in crisp white timber and adorned with a lush garden of succulents, the dwelling was an excellent match for our K1 Kitchen.
Holloway Rd is the home of Warren, Tracy and their teenage children Wren and Teale. This family had a very clear vision for their kitchen and approached us with a treasure trove of ideas, sketches and samples. The project goal was to create a space where family and friends could hang out and have fun. To meet these requirements, a K2 kitchen was installed, with creative embellishments, to the clients specifications.
This Alphington home is owned by a busy couple with four children. To accommodate their energetic lifestyle they wanted spaces that married the indoors with the outdoors. The combination of bright furnishings and terrazzo floors have created a light and airy kitchen and meals area. The house also has an outdoor fireplace and pool - features not often found in the inner-north of Melbourne.
This Nth Carlton home is full of character, vivid colours and a playful feel. The K2 kitchen's streamlined finger-pull drawers, matt finish two-pack fronts and stone benchtops create a minimal kitchen space providing the perfect back-drop for the owners tropical indoor plants and quirky collection of objects and artwork. An exposed brick splashback was chosen to add a textural element to the kitchen.
We’ve found that all of our clients have a unique style, and Robyn & Nick are no exception. Filled with interesting art, splashes of vibrant green and a verdant garden, their house is a reflection of the lives and experiences of this Hawthorn family.
Cantilever Interiors collaborated with emerging architectural firm, Thomas Winwood Architecture on a custom kitchen design project, in the Melbourne suburb of Prahran. The brief was to transform an uninspired 1970s townhouse into a light-filled, tactile and calm home that gives a subtle nod to Mid-Century style.
