Captain Meville is a beautiful addition to the cultural hub that is Melbourne, Australia. Designed by Breathe Architecture, the space is the re-invention of a dark inner city nightclub into a restaurant and bar inspired by the ghosts of the hotels first patrons.
Fixed or flexible gantries hang over tables and work surfaces to illuminate them individually. The space is surrounded with intimate seating whilst two large communal tables provide a places to gather.
Hundreds of timber sections are stacked to create a robust wall between the bar and dining hall.
