Sibling Spice

studio Y as Designers

The initial brief called for a fresh, contemporary and inviting design with wide appeal as the space was to serve three purposes; coffee takeaway hub, sit-down brunch hotspot and moody and inviting restaurant by night. The branding focuses on the two siblings (which were our client’s children) as inspiration. We sought to extend this idea of childhood nostalgia and take it to the school yard. Extracting key motifs from spaces around the school; we recreated them in a refined setting that would be sentimental and inclusive for all ages.

Balancing the concept with a contemporary colour palette was crucial. We added refinement with tones of soft green, crisp white and Victorian Ash timber. We divided the large space into sections; the more intimate café section mimics the classroom whereas when you move towards the rear it feels more collective and suggests the communality of the basketball court, school oval or canteen.

To be consistent with our theme we chose materials that reflected the common motifs found in a youthful, school-like setting. Mesh screens, commonly seen on sporting fields, timber ceiling fans and institutional tiling amongst subtle hints of nostalgia such as painted lines on the polished concrete floor which reference those seen on a basketball court, and drawers underneath the dining tables housing the menus reinforced and strengthened our concept.
