Studio Y. in Australia have designed the interiors of ‘Mock Turtle‘, a café in Melbourne.
From the architect:
Mock turtle soup was created in the mid-18th century as an affordable imitation of green turtle soup, long considered a delicacy in Victorian times. Soup quickly became a metaphor for this small space in Degraves Street; with its mishmash of public and private, customer and staff and always-busy interior. We injected this hole-in-the-wall with a quirky, fresh and fun finish, and even created the soup bowl style branding. Mock Turtle cafe is holistic design at its best.
