Food and Beverage

Middletown Café is the embodiment of refined style and thoughtful detailing, combining to create a sophisticated and elegant food and beverage destination.


Conceptualised in partnership with graphic design studio Pop + Pac, a unified approach to the interior design and environmental graphics, delivered a cohesive brand-led outcome and a truly original approach to hospitality design.

Solid and robust in materiality, the predominantly navy-blue interior, comprises a thoughtful combination of textures that nod to both the new and the old. This includes a contemporary terrazzo flooring laid in a traditional checkerboard pattern, layered with stone, metal and timber detailing. The striking space is softened by brass accents, pastel furnishings, and pale timbers. Intricate herringbone cladding along with perforated timber mouldings, create visual interest, while clean lines and warm lighting add to the welcoming, comfortable ambience.
