Case Study

The Eastland shopping centre kiosk design is a compact space full of custom elements and considered detail. The 23m2 café fit out comprises of timber panelling, white solid surface benchtops, Dulux powder coated corrugated metal cladding and commercial grade upholstery, neatly finished off with 10mm powder coated metal trims to all tops of the kiosk walls.

Located in the mall of the centre, the external façade catches the attention of mall traffic with striking precision of the expertly laid penny round mosaics popping against the dark grey grout. The vertical corrugated metal cladding wrapping the kiosk, features an ombre paint effect finish alongside ambient lighting on the refrigerated displays highlighting the café’s range of delectable cupcakes.


The Australian shopping centre café culture demands high quality coffee with a semi-relaxed setting to take a quick break between consumer shopping and retailer shifts. The custom banquette seating at The Cupcake Desire – Eastland was built by our team of leading Melbourne shopfitters, highly experienced in café fit outs. Designed to release air and allow the high density foam to swiftly restore, the booth seating was built with ventilation holes in the base to create continual comfort for all consumers.

Large amounts of solid surface elements were incorporated in the Ringwood café fit out, including the bench tops within the kitchen space, and two large custom built rectangular tables for the seating area. As registered manufacturers of solid surface, our skilled Melbourne shopfitters can quickly and easily produce custom solid surface components (check out the crazy shaped solid surface reception desks we built for the NAB) to meet any client requests. Being an attractive, non-porous material, solid surface is a popular alternative to stainless steel and Caesar Stone in Australian hospitality fit outs.
