Common Man is a restaurant bar. Offering satisfying rustic, hearty meals and a range of local and imported beers fit for a hunger created by a hard days work. A hub of hearty meat pies, pasta and pizza… the staples that have erased hunger in bellies since days of yore.
Everyday residential building materials have been used in the design – bringing the exterior into the interior. The canopy for the kitchen is finished in familiar red ceramic roof tiles and bricks and besser blocks have been used to build internal storage/bars and joinery. A green wall at the back of the space that acts as a garden in the leafy inner east suburbs.
Common Man is a tribute to the working men and women of Melbourne town. A reflection on where they lived, worked and played to shape the city that Melbourne is today. Its interior design resembles the four corners of Melbourne, providing a different visual experience every time you visit.
