The Milk Bar

A late-night cafe in the heart of the Northbridge entertainment precinct, designed as part of the rejuvenation of William Street in a heritage-listed building.

The elements of the interior are loosely based on those elements typical of an Australian 1950s milk bar – great murals and iconography, high-finish surfaces and styled lighting schemes. The furniture was selected and cabinetwork designed to create an effective and emotive venue, catering to both coffee rush hours and casual nights.

The clean-yet-crafted feel was designed to stand out amongst the ‘shabby chic’ cafes and the all-too-slick coffee barns in the precinct.
