Characterised by block shapes, clean lines and raw materials, interior design is stripped back, relaxed and honest, drawing primarily on stone, brass and timber. Informal, European-style benches overlook the market and its daily hustle, while custom-designed flexible seating cultivates a sense of community.
Natural materials throughout create tactility and warmth, including Italian marble and reclaimed Oregon. Luxurious touches of polished brass, leather and craft lighting transition the space from a local café to a stylish neighbourhood bar come evening. The glamorous bar, showcasing contrasting colours and grains of Travertine and stone, is a highlight.
Connecting the convivial spirit of the heritage market with the new mixed-use development sets to create a vibrant community destination in this beloved corner of Melbourne – at once distinctly Australian yet offering a traditional European welcome.
