Brunswick West

Lovers in the Economy #3

Above: Community activity, participation and even intimacy takes place in our public mainstreets.

Our retailers provide the places. They are the creators of the community and the economy.

John Gorilla cafe, 49 Pearson Street, Brunswick West, Australia.

Three things every cafe owner needs to know

1.  Have an interesting name.

2.  Your retail design is a collection of solutions to your problems: How should we clad the counter?  How should we dress the tables? What are people going to see when they look up?  How are we going to light the cafe without a ceiling cavity?  How can I finally put my long wooden ruler collection to use?

3.  Visit as many other cafes as you can in order to come up with your own inspiration.

That's it.
