Depot de Pain Fleur’s is the first of three in a series we designed. This French cafe, patisserie and restaurant has been in operation since 2010 and is located in the foyer of the Blackman Art Series Hotel, St Kilda Road, next door to Classico. The greatest challenge was creating a place that feels comfortable for breakfast as well as late night drinks.
The opportunity of designing both hospitality ventures at a hotel allowed us to provide guests with complimentary options. The materials were selected to create different atmospheres but a cohesive feel. In both instances we cater to solo diners to ensure visitors feel good when they enter.
Depot was designed to operate from breakfast to dinner and later with a retail component. This diversity creates an energetic space with an atmosphere that shifts through the day.
Materials + Seating
Providing patrons with options and balancing light and dark materials were a critical elements in making the venue feel good throughout the day
