Mim Design | Crisp Street Apartment

Can’t  believe that I’ve only got to discover about Mim Design now, while reading their project featured on Yellowtrace. Some time in November 2013, I’ve travelled to Melbourne to visit a good friend. While wandering aimlessly at Crown, I remember seeing this shop – the Cotta Cafe, and couldn’t help to stop to admire the beautiful shop front and interior. It looked warm, rustic and unpretentious. And Mim Design, is the talented Melbourne-based creative practice behind the design of this cafe. cotta 2 Browsing through their portfolio, I saw more amazing projects.

Just what I’ve imagined for a perfect home in Melbourne. crisp street 01 crisp street 02_01 crisp street 06_02 crisp street 06-01 crisp street 09
