Light Years Eatery in Melbourne
Local Hawthorn East Cafe, Victoria, Australia – design by ZWEI Interiors Architecture

Light Years Hawthorn East Cafe
Design: ZWEI, architects
Location: 132 Camberwell Road, Hawthorn East, Melbourne, Australia
Modern Cafe in Melbourne, Australia
Designed as a space that evokes the sense of the universe beyond, Lightyears is a local Melbourne eatery that subtlety references both the environment and experience of the inter-planetary universe.
Utilising the existing building shell as the backdrop, the material insertions playfully reference texture and form of both organic moonscapes and man-made space travel.
Coloured film is positioned to play with ambient colour tones, and lighting is used as a backdrop to the action within.
Details throughout are simple but considered, allowing the space not to feel overly thematic.
The space was conceptualised not as a café, but as a space for respite from everyday life. The ‘otherworldliness’ of the interior environment encourages a connection, but also a sense of letting go.
