Never mind the fact we initially thought this was an interior of a milk-bar (rather than an artisan cocktail bar of alcoholic variety), the beautifully crafted space is a little jewellery box carefully designed, resolved and detailed within an inch of it’s life. The Munich bar interior, designed by Fabian A. Wagner of Buero Wagner with Andreas Kreft, pays tribute to the local Bavarian culture and craftsmanship.

Scanlan Theodore’s newest stores – in Sydney’s Paddington and The Strand Arcade, and Melbourne’s Armadale – have been designed by Sydney based practice, Meacham Nockles McQualter.

With such an exquisitely crafted timber structure, the architects were keen to honour the original bones of the space.
