Prior Cafe by Ritz & Ghougassian
637 High St, Thornbury VIC 3071
Art deco inspired, apricot interior haven
‘A former Melbourne print house heavy in art deco accents is stripped back into a clean interior of exposed ceiling and earthy materials, ready to make every brunch photo aesthetically Insta-worthy and delicious. With a splash of white and peachy tan – I present you Prior Thornbury designed by Ritz & Ghougassian.
Steadfast in demonstrating Prior’s principle in honest-to-goodness food within their architecture, Ritz & Ghougassian echo these sentiments into the furniture as well. Geometrical pieces throughout complement the apricot colours. To the south, a bar counter that separates the kitchen and dining space is made of Policrete’s pigmented concrete. Ross Didier’s Gunzel square chairs and stools accompany each table, and plush classic brown square leather seats line the north wall. Lastly, timber tables and picnic benches centrally aligned with the ceiling trusses soften the space.’ Written by Kimberly Hui, Yellowtrace (Source: https://www.yellowtrace.com.au/ritz-ghougassian-prior-thornbury-melbourne-cafe/)
