Loafer Bread approached us to help them re-think the interior layout of their tiny North Fitzroy cafe. Working with a small space and an even smaller budget, our aim was to retain the atmosphere of the cafe; whilst maximising the available floor space. This was achieved through the introduction of new seating and display options, and the retention of most of the existing fittings and fixtures. The new banquette seat provides seating options for both small and large groups; and a new bench and window display engages the cafe with the street.
The new elements have been installed incrementally so that the cafe could remain open, and serving its many regular customers, throughout the works.
