Project summary

This new venue helps to elevate Angelo Street as a desirable destination in its own right. The space is highly functional and flexible and can easily transition from day to night-time uses in future, without the need for significant further investment.

The design provides a range of different seating options – high stools, standing benches, regular tables, integrated seating, lounge chairs and outdoor dining under a large established tree – catering to various purposes and moods.

And it opens up to the adjacent courtyard – with its established jacaranda tree – to offer much-needed “respite” in this relatively urban inner-city location.

Inspired by the owner’s Mediterranean heritage, we incorporated terracotta and salmon hues, Italian travertine, warm timbers, and textural elements reminiscent of European seaside towns.

The venue has broad appeal for a range of patrons, contributing to the local community by increasing amenity in the neighbourhood.

Western Australia Jury Presentation

In order to make Split on Angelo the best venue on the block, we aimed to offer the best coffee in a fresh, attractive space, to encourage new and repeat business.

This venture ties together our existing business – to meet clients and showcase offerings – and speaks to my European heritage and WA home. In future, we’ll transform it into a bar, to enhance and extend our offering.

The connection to a shaded courtyard doubles our capacity and provides an advantage over other operators. The café is comfortable, easily managed, and adaptable as we settle into Angelo Street.
