Nominations in Category

Little Collins - Goodman Property Trust / Hassell Studio

Interior Design - Hospitality


- Winner

The design for Little Collins in Notting Hill is one that breaks down the monotonous workings of business park cafes and seeks to want more than just an operator. It has set a new benchmark in both design and format for business park cafes. Little Collins hopes to be an escape for patrons and has fast become the metaphorical heart of the neighbourhood. The end product is a dynamic and warm 'Belisure' hub that provokes and entices patrons to celebrate food and coffee.

Code Black Coffee - Cafenatics Group / Zwei Interiors Architecture

Interior Design - Hospitality


- Winner

Coffee is entrenched in Melbourne's identity as both a product and contributor to its cosmopolitan culture. Melbourne's love affair with coffee has evolved beyond the renowned labyrinth of laneways and the city centre - taking with it the expectation of a multi-sensory experience incorporating great, often locally roasted, coffee and unique design. Code Black is simultaneously a laboratory, a workshop and a hub for connoisseurs of the dark art and science of coffee. Its design delivers a stripped back, masculine, almost reverential ode to the coffee bean.

B'Stilla - B'Stilla / e2

Interior Design - Hospitality


Finalist

Encompassing authenticity, informality and escapism, B’Stilla is Melbourne’s new Moroccan kid on the block. Co-owner and former head chef of Mamasita, Jason Jones focuses on delivering exceptional modern Moroccan cuisine in an honest, humble, affordable and relaxed environment, striking the perfect balance between casual eating and fine dining. "E2 provided us with a great concept for our restaurant, the feedback that we constantly receive from customers is overwhelming. they really hit the nail on the head and we're extremely pleased with their delivery". Jason Jones, co-owner B'Stilla

Aer Bar - Australian Hospitality Management Pty Ltd / Perrett Ewert Leaf Pty Ltd

Interior Design - Hospitality


Finalist

Nestled into the tops of the surrounding tree canopies in Exhibition st, perched on top of the long established European Bier Cafe, the design for Aer Bar uses its warm finishes and mature landscaping to create a purpose built inviting rooftop space in the midst of the urban rush of Melbourne's CBD.

Grain Store - BrandWorks / Betty & Wolff

Interior Design - Hospitality


Finalist

The western end of Flinders Lane can be a lonely place after hours with a lack of quality eating establishments. The client felt that there was a gap in market for beautifully prepared food in this part of town where the community could hang out over a cup of specialty coffee. Hence the client’s brief is to bring a warm and natural space into an otherwise grim part of the city and to reactivate this space into a lively precinct buzzing with people and activity. As the team digs deeper into the area’s history, they discovered that the space was originally used for storing grains and stock a century ago. Immediately the concept of a refined country parlour - the Grain Store - was born.

The More The Better - The More The Better / CKH Design

Interior Design - Hospitality


Nestled in the late 19th century’s historic heritage building in Elsternwick, The More The Better offers a contemporary Asian cuisine in its minimalistic setting. CKH Design’s response was to create a space reflects client’s food philosophy which is about enjoying the mixture of diverse cultural flavours in a balanced way. It resulted rich textures from a combination of different materials yet minimalistic detail capturing modern Asian character within the 19th century’s historic building.
