The Grounds of Alexandria

Caroline Choker


A former warehouse and pie factory, The Grounds of Alexandria compels as a holistic café, restaurant, artisan bakery and coffee roasting facility. An abundant heirloom garden overflows externally, while internally, an aesthetic of shabby chic meets contemporary triumphs in what is a cool and comfortable fitout. Details are cleverly contrasted, such as polished tiles, blackened steel frames, bespoke wooden cabinetry and refitted shipping containers.
