Melbourne Central

The Uncarved Block


Utilising sustainable materials, Melbourne Central’s dining space is broken down into unique areas, with the central structure featuring Australia’s largest mosaic artwork. Surrounded by an audience of seated diners, butterflies and other elements of nature appear in the whimsical mosaic. The layout defies a fundamental rule in food court design, where sight lines to all tenancies from anywhere are a pre-requisite. Furniture and lighting are varied per section and floor, wall and ceiling treatments are textured.
