Cafe Rosco by Plus Architecture

Plus Architecture’s interiors division reinvents St Kilda Road eatery.


January 17th, 2011

Project Team: Plus Interiors

Location: Melbourne, VIC

Type of Development: Hospitality

St Kilda’s Cafe Rosco has received a contemporary facelift from the interiors division of Plus Architecture.


Charcoal tones and horizontal timber wall cladding create a warm, rustic atmosphere.

The space was redesigned while keeping the strengths of the existing features in mind, such as stripping the white paint on the back wall cladding and adding a subtle varnish to bring out the warmth of the natural timber.

A white and black graphic was projected onto the wall and painted on as a cost-effective alternative to wallpaper.


“This project is an excellent example of a fit-out reflecting the relaxed feel of a Melbourne restaurant blended with the vibrancy of the cafe’s owners,” said Interior Design Leader Michael Edwards.
