Cumquat Tree House

Commendation Most Innovative Kitchen Design

Designer: Megowan Architectural
Builder: Yaniv Shimony
Photographer: Nils Koenning
Location: Caulfield, VIC

The kitchen of Cumquat Tree House is the true heart of this home, strategically and centrally located with the dining area and balanced between the outdoor garden cinema and the indoor living room. It anchors and adds balance into this house plan. The kitchen design is enhanced by generous benchtops for preparation, and walk ways for easy circulation. Impressive features include concrete benchtops, a retractable splash back, walk in pantry and abundant storage. Black, white and soft concrete colours on a timber floor anchor a contemporary look that sits comfortably in this Deco home – most worthy of a commendation.
