Hyde Park Meeting Place Kiosk | $70k | Constructed 2022

Small community driven projects play an important role in strengthening local communities. Due to Hyde Park’s Heritage Listing this project was limited to an interior fitout with a small alfresco space. The City of Vincent adapted a small storeroom near the children’s playground to accommodate the kiosk. The owners name ‘Meeting Place Kiosk’ acknowledges the significance of the site as a gathering point for the Whadjuk Noongar people as well as the wider community in more recent times. Like all compact ‘hole in the wall’ tenancies the layout is primarily driven by functionality however the fitout’s earthy colour palette and materiality subtly draws from the surrounding natural environment. A mural on the roller door by local indigenous artist Marcia McGuire also draws from the surrounding landscape. Run by the team from Veggie Mama in Mount Lawley the kiosk offering is focused on fresh healthy food. We hope the kiosk will play a role in activating its surroundings by establishing a permanent food offering in Hyde Park for the local community. Fitout construction by Breffni Group.
