Sensation and flavour are the key ingredients for a successful café. This low-budget fitout of an old heritage shopfront in Carlisle Street ties in demanding practical needs with quirks and perks of the surrounds for a perfect fit. The long skinny space is exaggerated with a full-length skylight and timber battened night-light inspired by the adjacent railway and urban textures. The skylight leads out to a rear courtyard or customers can embrace the feel of a bustling railway carriage inside.
