Block Arcade

Hunter Gatherer is another Brotherhood of St Laurence initiative, offering hand selected vintage clothing elegantly coupled with boutique jewellery sourced from local artisans. This particular venue, located in the Royal Arcade of Melbourne, has a footprint of just 2.4x 9 metres. A spectacular vintage sepia image of a New York city building construction was a key element, dramatically improving the perception of size in this small space, and creating a vacuum effect to passers-by. A charming iron staircase protected by the heritage trust added to the difficulty of this project, but eventually only contributed to the impressive end result that became a finalist in the Retail Design Institute Awards, 2011.
