Viaje exprés de última hora hasta el Market Lane Coffee, en el Queen Victoria Market de Melbourne…
El proyecto de reforma es del estudio Hearth.
Me encanta que hayan conservado las carpinterías de níquel originales de este puesto, así como los azulejos blancos del interior y las hermosas encimeras de mármol de Carrara.
«Our design for Market Lane Coffee at the Dairy Hall in the Queen Victoria Market is informed by the incredible heritage shell of the corner stall; the rich materiality of the external facades and the pure utility of the original tiled interior.»
«A decision was made to keep the main joinery elements off the walls allowing the entire space to be perceived, as it would have been originally. The old wall tiles, damaged over time, have been preserved and new tiles to match the originals have been used. The original high level paneling has been retained. With the ceiling free of anything but light fittings, the room glows on the corner. The treatment of the simple interior walls enhances the external facade, the ornate nickel window frames and Carrara marble benchtops.»
