KereKere – Fitzroy Gardens
Continuing the traditions of the KereKere Kiosk at Melbourne Uni and KereKere South, KereKere Green at the Fitzroy Gardens provides opportunities for young people facing barriers to employment, and donates some of its profit to a variety of causes. To find out more about James and his socially conscious enterprise please visit www.kerekere.org.
Situated in the gardens, the cafe maximises views and light using a raked ceiling and clerestory windows, positioning views from the tables to the outside gardens. The cafe also maximises the available space by utilising fixed and flexible furniture; with seating at a communal bench, central table and corner banquette. Seating is extended to an outdoor area with further views of the gardens.
