Completed 2005 the refurbishment of the well known and highly regarded DOV café at the corner of Forbes and Burton Streets in Darlinghurst, was a high profile opportunity for MiArchitects to engage with the public for the first time.
The brief was for a space that could function as both a relaxed daytime café and be transformed at night, to offer a more intimate dining experience. The re-design seeks to connect the restaurant to the surrounding historical development and active social communities. The project also included a dynamic recycled timber contemporary infill to the Burton St facade which hangs the work of local artists on rotation.
