Mosskito, Clifton Hill

Mosskito, Clifton HillThis former garage in Clifton Hill, Melbourne provides the perfect landmark for the people at Mosskito to run their restaurant.

The horizontal facade features a mixture of brick styles to provide simple decoration and large rectangular rendered areas that are ideal for signage.

The most striking feature is the central column. Rendered cream against the dark of the bricks it provides a wonderful support for the retaurant name. Both vertically on the front of the building and also as a beacon on top of the column.

Another example of a how older buildings can be adapted and re-used to stunning effect.
