This classic café, designed by DCA Design Inc, incorporates modern elements while respecting the estate's history.
Contemporary Chairs These add modern flair. Tables with easy-to-clean surfaces were used to avoid the need to launder tablecloths.
Low-VOC Paint Used on the ceiling and walls, this paint reduced emissions and odours in the eating area.
Porcelain Tile Flooring This was a more durable and low-maintenance choice than the room's old carpet.
