Anston Architectural make bespoke concrete products for designers of exterior space. They leased a retail space in the eclectic, industrious and now desirable inner Melbourne suburb of Abbotsford. We were approached to design an interior that showcased their premium product. How could we say no?

A series of small yet habitable spaces have been designed, each displaying Anston’s product in both typical and unexpected applications. Customers can enter each realistic setting, experiencing the product from within a dining terrace, outdoor shower booth or entertaining lounge.

Closer to the rear of the showroom an interior flavour takes hold; a wine bar, communal workstation and even bar stools all employ the product in a surprising yet logical manner.

Rather than having to visualise the suitability of Anston’s product, the customer can physically interact with it inside realistic everyday settings.
