For a city that’s increasingly obsessed with good design, it’s unsurprising that a number of Melbourne venues made the cut on the list of finalists for the 2015 Eat Drink Design Awards.
A nice surprise this year, however, is that The Broadsheet Restaurant has been nominated in the “Best Temporary Design” category.
The Eat Drink Design Awards support innovation in design throughout Australia and New Zealand’s hospitality industry, recognising outstanding performance in environments that span from high-end restaurants to hole-in-the-wall cafes.
Broadsheet’s first restaurant opened from June 5 to August 2, 2015, at 166 Gertrude Street in Fitzroy. The food and drink menu showcased the very best of Melbourne’s cafes, restaurants, bars and roasters. Therefore Studio designed the interior, and Melbourne’s finest makers helped bring it to life.
“Best Temporary Design” acknowledges achievement in temporary or transportable spaces. Also included in this category is Seven Seeds’ Docklands café, Hortus, and the CCP pop-up during Photobook Melbourne.
Other local nominees for this year’s Awards include Heartattack and Vine (Nicky Adams in collaboration with Perarchitects), Smalls (Fiona Lynch Office), Terminus Hotel (Techne Architecture + Interior Design), Lûmé (Studio Y), Transformer Fitzroy (Breathe Architecture), Entrecôte (Flack Studio with Jason M. Jones) and Code Black, North Melbourne (Zwei Interiors Architecture).
We’re excited to have been recognised for our achievements within the architectural sphere, and would like to thank our designers Therefore Studio and The Company You Keep for all of their hard work.
The 2015 Eat Drink Design Awards will be held in Melbourne on Tuesday November 17. The awards are endorsed by the Australian Institute of Architects and the Design Institute of Australia.
