A Melbourne Restaurant with an Au Courant Color Palette

February 8, 2017

Armadale’s new local: Moby 3143 is a Melbourne restaurant from a pair of industry veterans (Steven Svenson, the former head chef of Pillar of Salt, and Christina Higgins, the former catering manager for London’s Ottolenghi). Located in a three-level 1970s space, the interiors were overhauled by designers Kylie Dorotic and Alicia McKimm of We Are Huntly, who deployed a palette of dusty pink and inky blue. Join us for a tour.

Above: The designers wanted to ensure the food remained center stage. Dorotic and McKimm’s response was to create a café that felt “established, approachable and local.”
