Café Melba by designphase dba, Singapore

July 1st, 2013 by retail design blog

In a lush green field, under tall and ancient shade trees, a contemporary country cabin beckons with aromas of wholesome cooking, coffee and the soft sounds of gentle conversation. The Café Melba story began with a romantic notion and a walk through the garden of 90 Goodman (the former LaSalle College of the Arts, in Singapore).

In appearance, the modern Australia vernacular speaks of an easy, elegant lifestyle, with daylight filtering through the 4-metre high timber louvered windows to a comfortable, rustic yet elegant restaurant and bar.

Air-conditioned interiors speak of a sophisticated country feel with oiled timber floors, exposed trusses and earth toned fabrics. The raw concrete bar top is capped in solid, reclaimed timber, perfect for drinks in preparation for your alfresco evening on the terrace.

The old basketball court was perfectly positioned as a vantage point to the panorama of lush grass and giant stands of Angsana the perfect setting for this new, single-storey café-restaurant. Away from the city, yet close enough for lunch, evening drinks or a late breakfast with your (girl) friends (after the morning ‘school-run’).

On Sundays – the perfect family brunch location! Sit back, relax and watch the kids tumble on the grass or play Frisbee in the field. Café Melba is clean, simple, open, elegant and relaxing; it reminds you of what you desire for a dining and living circumstance when on a family holiday…with an award winning chef.
