Parma cafe, Wollongong, NSW

Yellow furnishings and finishes bring sunshine into this cafe located within the Wollongong Central shopping centre. Instead of a grab-bag of separate tables, the cafe features a large communal table to provide a cleaner, structured look, while also fostering interaction between patrons. A second structured seating area wraps around the service kiosk and visually links the two dining areas. A strong overlay of materials, texture and form gives definition to the small space so it stands out among many competing visual stimuli – sunflower yellow Tolix chairs and subway tiles reference Wollongong’s relaxed beachside location, while contrasting black and grey counterpoints lend urban cred.
