Singapore-based studio Designphase dba have designed the Café Melba in Singapore. Located in a lush green field, under tall and ancient shade trees, the café beckons with aromas of wholesome cooking, coffee and the soft sounds of gentle conversation. Here is a description from the designers, “The Café Melba story began with a romantic notion and a walk through the garden of 90 Goodman (the former LaSalle College of the Arts).
The old basketball court was perfectly positioned as a backdrop to the panorama of lush grass and giant stands of Angsana the perfect setting for a new, single-storey café-restaurant. Away from the city, yet close enough for lunch, evening drinks or a late breakfast with your (girl) friends (after the morning ‘school-run’).
Air-conditioned interiors speak of a sophisticated country feel with oiled timber floors, exposed trusses and earth toned fabrics. The raw concrete bar top is capped in polished timber-perfect for drinks in preparation for your alfresco evening on the terrace.
On Sundays – the perfect family brunch location! Sit back, relax and watch the kids tumble on the grass or play frisbee in the field.”
