Once upon a time, the building was a storage house, then it was a retail store, and now it has been transformed into a cafe and restaurant.

The design concept for the space was the familiar coffee swirl pattern that is often seen when preparing cafe drinks.

To make the design concept real, native Australian timber and digital fabrication were used to create the sculptural piece that flows through the space.

The curved timber feature leads you through the space, allowing you to see glimpses of the original buildings brick and sandstone walls, wood columns, and old steel work.

From conception, to early renderings and 3D models, through to laser cutting and CNC, only 3D models were used without construction drawings or conventional plans and sections.
