For the inviting interiors of Moby 3143, design firm Golden (formerly Melbourne’s We Are Huntly) conceived a scheme where the natural light that floods the space takes center stage. Comprising two floors, 1970s Tuscany served as inspiration, seen in the ochre walls and ceiling with color-blocking added for a modern and chic touch. Dusty pink spans the walls, while the darker greenish blue notes amplify the atmosphere for a kinetic energy in an otherwise understated space. Along with joinery, the color blocking also connects the two floors, while the gray exterior offsets white timber frames and the subtler elements of the space, all working together to create a destination café that is alluringly photogenic.
