Outpost Dining Room is an unabashed celebration of the food experience driven by the chef and owner’s desire to serve fresh ingredients in a simple way. Designed with a simple aesthetic in mind and leveraging off the neighbouring original Outpost cafe, the restaurant offers authentic, home-style dishes as a communal dining experience.
An expressive use of materials and detailing establish a character reflective of the broader food experience – simple ingredients handled with care. An old timber shopfront and exposed service areas express some of the details that reflect the ‘nothing to hide’ philosophy of the industrial era. Limed timbers, tessellated tiling and hand crafted seating suggest that the warmth of a lingering communal food experience is as important as the food itself.Location: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Architect: HASSELL Client: Malatesta Corporation Project name: Outpost Dining Room
