Melbourne's Higher Ground Cafe and Eatery is a Former Industrial Site

The Higher Ground cafe and restaurant in Melbourne gets patrons charged up with a coffee and a good meal, which is fitting considering the eatery's locale. Built inside a decommissioned power station, the Higher Ground cafe and restaurant makes use of the brick walls and high ceilings that were a necessity for the former industrial site.

Designed by Design Office, an architecture firm based out of Collingwood, Australia, the only significant spatial addition to the building is a new level to separate cafe-goers from diners. Otherwise, the structure of the building is essentially unchanged from when it was a power station. To offset the toughness of the exposed bricks, Design Office included ample planters throughout the interior.
