Gathered Café, Footscray, Melbourne

Mokum

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.

"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.
