The Mowbray Newsagency on Invermay Road is a well established newsagency serving Mowbray and the greater Northern Suburbs. A large portion of its business is Tattslotto and Tobacco sales as well as Newspapers, Magazines, Stationary and Gifts. Following comments and requests from regular customers, the owners of the Mowbray Newsagency recognised there was a market for quality coffee in the area, a service that would greatly complement the offerings of their store.
The 6ty° architectural team were engaged to develop a concept for a takeaway coffee counter within the confines of the existing Newsagency. Whilst a simple counter tucked in the corner would meet their requirements, there was an opportunity to develop a contemporary, welcoming Espresso Bar that would appear to stand on its own and entice a new clientelle as well as service the regular customers. Half of the existing shopfront was set aside as the new face of ‘Mobrew Coffee’.
