Hannah Fenstra came to ctrl Space with a space and a really solid concept to change what was currently being used as a garage/storage space in a block of shops in Ellerslie into the local gem of the neighbourhood. Open Table was to be a community café.
The community were excited from the outset and got behind Hannah as she managed to raise the extra funds needed via the crowd funding website Kickstarter. With the community ready and waiting for the cafe to open, a space had to be delivered that would be their space.
A bustling open kitchen was created right behind the coffee machine with a selection of new and repurposed joinery mixed in with preloved tables and chairs. There are gentle nods to the industrial and the familiar touches of the domestic within the space.
Through a process of uncovering and removal of years of paint and plaster, the existing wall was left with a lovely worn patina of soft greys and purples. This was maintained for the upper part of the café walls with a painted dado line in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen waterborne enamel in Resene Onepoto (pale cyan blue). The colour was selected to complement a brand colour chosen by the client that was applied to the coffee machine and counter lighting. Its application to the walls brought all the interior elements together.
