As the name suggests, Standing Room isn’t about sitting down for a few hours over brunch. There’s a Synesso machine pumping out 5 Senses’ Dark Horse blend, a shelf of very pretty cakes courtesy of Hapsburg Empire in Albert Park and standing room only.
The clean, crisp layout is not only a model of efficiency, but the 18-square-metre space is designed in a way that allows crowds to move through with ease.
All the packaging is biodegradable and the coffee grounds are being cycled back through the university’s compost system to be redistributed around the gardens.
Consideration has even been given to those who don’t have a taste for coffee, with a full range of T2 teas and Hepburn soft drinks available. Additionally, the gorgeous copper cake shelf (designed by the folks down at Tait) constantly has a gluten-free option on offer, sure to keep even the fussiest of students content.
Standing Room is now hiring. Find out more on Scout, Broadsheet's new employment website.
