Noosa's Hasting Street boutique retail shop transforms as an artisan coffee and gourmet food in the AM, waning into gin cocktails, wine and cheese platters into the evening.
A challenging space given it’s size, and with a lack of required food-service infrastructure, a full bare-shell design and shop fitting rework was undertaken.
A delicate and functional space, offering multiple-service types, careful and practical food-service design crammed a busy cafe & bar into the tiny 50m2 shop. Working in unison with the shape of the tenancy, our Design and Fitout teams practiced extensive customisation to minimise construction cost, yet still seat enough patrons with enough food & beverage equipment to produce, within such a narrow footprint.
Drawing from the natural earthy personality with European influence of the business identity brief from client, the interior touches flow throughout the experience – otsumigaki rendered arches recessed into walls and encase timber retail joinery and refrigeration. A unique eucalypt composite concrete-coated fascia clads a fabricated counter structure, housing coffee and bar equipment and extensive internal pipework, while still offering comfortable legroom for seated patrons. Custom overhead copper pipe with integrated lighting doubles as cocktail barware utensil hanging rail, and flows as working water-station plumbing. Hand-cut marble mosaic tile floors, and home made hand-formed terracotta wall sconce covers finish the venue with painstaking passion.
