Set on the Maribyrnong River in Footscray, Melbourne is a heritage-listed, red brick warehouse that previously housed the Lonely Planet HQ. Since mid-2019, this gorgeous building is now home to a gorgeous new eatery called the Gathered Café.

Gathered Café, Footscray, Melbourne
"Featuring timber, touches of leather and an abundance of Shoji linen-look drapery."
With generous seating for 90 people, the café serves up European-influenced dishes for breakfast and lunch. The design was a collaborative effort between the owners and architects Ewert & Leaf. Featuring timber, touches of leather and an abundance of Shoji linen-look drapery (Mokum, colour Mist) covering the large steel windows. The organic aesthetic of the fabric balances the industrial elements of the space. An exquisite fit-out making it the go-to café in Footscray.
