Artem Coffee Highgate | $80k | Constructed 2021

We worked with the Artem Coffee team to deliver their new offering situated in the Woolworths complex on the corner of Bulwer and Stirling Streets in Highgate. As a compact functionally driven 12sqm fitout we chose to harness the volume of the space for dramatic effect using a bright pink up-lit ceiling void. This glimpse of colour hovering above a narrow shopfront aims to capture the attention of those passing by. The interior employs a pink, black, light terrazzo, brass, walnut timber, pink perspex materials palette with a mural by artist Hayley Welsh in the indoor seating nook. Artem Coffee Highgate extends on our love of designing small ‘hole in the wall’ coffee offerings that engage with local communities and activate streetscapes. The outcome illustrates the role small spaces and projects can play in contributing to local communities.
