The good times roll at Billie Buoy, a new community-friendly eatery in Essendon, Melbourne. Serving up healthy food and old-school tunes, Billie Buoy draws in young people and young families with its feel-good vibes of the 1980s. So pump up the volume on your mix tape, your shoulder pads and your hair, because Billie Buoy is too rad to be bad.

为了使Billie Buoy更具影响力与吸引力,室内与品牌进行了同步的设计。在互联网和手机出现之前,人们翻来覆去地听Atari和Walkman,用VHS看约翰·休斯的电影,狂热的喜欢新秩序和麦当娜。Billie Buoy的设计正展现了八十年代激进,时髦,另类的特征。


The interiors and branding were developed in unison to create high impact and strengthen Billie Buoy’s appeal. We looked back to the days before Internet and cell phones – we dusted off our Atari and Walkman, put a John Hughes movie in the VHS, and jammed to New Order and Madonna – and conceived Billie Buoy as a 1980s character who was radical, hip and a little offbeat.

Occupying a corner location, the building has strong street presence to the front and side. Glass windows provide a view into the front of the venue, while the side wall is splashed with “Wake Me Up When I’m Famous,” providing a memorable backdrop for Instagram fame.

在这60平方米的内部空间里,每一厘米都被充分利用了起来。在某种程度上,它被设计成一个小餐厅,玄关处设置了转角沙发,紧接着是带有高脚凳的吧台区,为进出流线提供了周转的空间。经过拱形的通道后,是设有卡座沙发的后部餐厅区和后院。拱形是Billie Buoy一个重要的元素,天花板的边缘为了契合拱形元素而降低,柔化了天花板与墙面的界限。

Every centimetre of the compact 60-square-metre space is utilised to its full potential. Designed somewhat like a diner, a corner of banquette seating is at the entry, flowing into the counter area with stools, which is open to accommodate circulation in and out. An arched tunnel leads to more banquette seating in the rear dining room and to the back-of-house. The arch is a distinctive feature throughout Billie Buoy, its geometric curvature reducing the height of the ceiling in places and softening the junction between ceiling and wall.

Nothing says 1980s like a palette of cobalt blue and hot pink. Blue is bold and moody, with textural materials – terrazzo, mosaic tiles, rendered walls and felt upholstery – to create depth, richness and variation within the singular hue. Brick flooring grounds the space, while the stainless-steel bar and arched shelving has old-school counter vibes. Hot pink and neon punch up the palette and help get customers into the groove.

We developed the brand identity, including the signage, coffee cups, packaging and apparel, inspired by the bright, colourful designs of Memphis. Rick Astley’s catchy lyrics are printed on the takeaway bags, and a Billie Buoy play on the Billionaire Boys Club is on the branded apparel.
