Two:Bob is a new cafe designed by DesignOffice which has just opened in the Clifton Hill suburb of Melbourne.
The interior was conceived as a joyous, light-filled and relaxed environment for the convivial enjoyment of food and drink. Designed with this in mind and in response to the existing architecture, the cafe can be seen as an installation of light-weight furniture pieces crafted from timber, leather and ceramic that nestle within the thick masonry walls of the former bank building.
Painted with a palette of soft muted tones and subtle hues, the high ceilings and large windows create a bright and lucid interior, dappled with light from the tree-lined streets of Clifton Hill.
