Prince Dining Room

We absolutely love the beautiful modernist interiors of the Prince Dining Room, designed by Melbourne-based Architecture and design firm IF Architecture. Located at The Prince Hotel, the hints of green and black steel, paired with customised furniture throughout the bright and light space evokes a feeling of relaxation and calmness…

Lagotto

Lagotto in Fitzroy North is a new collaboration between Millieu Hospitality Group, Flack Studio and chef David Fisher. Bridging the gap between cafe, restaurant and local deli, Lagotto offers different things to different people. The bold and unapologetic design is a visual feast which welcomes you in with characteristic Italian hospitality and European flair. Rich materials are used generously and with enthusiasm, with islands of polished natural stone sitting amongst the deep-red terrazzo floor…

Stamford Park Homestead

Stamford Park Homestead has been wonderfully reimagined by seasoned restaurateur Jason Jones (Entrecôte, Bouzy, Second Home) and interior designer and partner, Brahman Perera. We are so excited that this historical gem is located just 28km South East of Melbourne’s CBD! The beautiful mix of both classic and modern design reflects the incredible history and current evolution of Stamford Park. Designed by Jones’ partner, Brahman Perera, the interior plays on the tradition of early Australian homesteads, incorporating lush upholsteries, mixed solid timbers, honed marble and natural rattan forming a rich material palette…

Congress Wine

DesignOffice has nailed the balance of feature pieces (such as the custom stainless steel high bench with bespoke lighting) that are seamlessly integrated with each other and with the building itself. You'll find yourself noticing more and more of the neat details the longer you spend at Congress - and it’s dangerously easy to spend a lot of time here as the food and wine are honestly delicious…

Future Future

Walking into Future Future feels like slowly waking up from a dream. Carved from a quintessential Richmond red-brick building, the restaurant features a fascinating combination of styles and materials. The Future Future ethos embraces the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi (the finding of beauty in transience and imperfection) in both its menu and interiors. This creates a surreal but coherent, strange and intimate setting which is perfect for sampling their unique and delicious selection of food and drinks. The eclectic combination of materials have been brought together to great effect. The details are spot on; from the custom ceramic cups, embroidered uniforms, metal joinery, through to the retrofuturistic branding Future Future is difficult to describe but beautiful, and you’ll have to go and experience it for yourselves!

Bicycle Thieves

Light, fresh, timeless. Bicycle Thieves café on High Street Northcote designed by Pierce Widera is a celebration of modern Australian minimalist design. The floor to ceiling windows and polished concrete floor ensure that the whole space is bathed in natural light. We also love the stunning custom lighting fixture which runs the full length of the main counter and the tiled detailing of the counter itself. It’s the perfect spot for your next Sunday brunch!

Cheek

Vegetarians beware! Cheek restaurant in Swanston Street is a self-described ‘non-traditional meatery’ and has a very carnivorous menu. When you go upstairs from busy Swanston Street you are transported to a striking minimalist environment and your eye is immediately drawn down the length of the space guided by the stunning neon light and central concrete bench, both of which run the full length of the restaurant. Nothing is hidden in this bold design by Pierce Widera, and every element has been pared-back and presented in its natural beauty.

ISH

We love the rich texture and carefully considered details of ISH, a modern Indian restaurant which opened in Fitzroy in October 2018. Architect Annu Bains has done a wonderful job bringing together the warmth of India and contrasting it with the industrial feel of the Gertrude Street location. Exposed brick and industrial-inspired metalwork are juxtaposed with natural leather and soft furnishings which creates an inviting but exciting setting to eat their delicious food.
