Midi 3121 designed by Sans-Arc Studio is a tranquil café located in Melbourne's Richmond.

Within the architectural framework of MA Architects, the space presents a minimalistic approach to interior design. This boutique office development has been designed to read as a singular, robust form – a striking and modern addition to Richmond’s industrial neighborhood. The bold façade was conceived as a modern interpretation of the adjacent historical warehouses, utilizing a refined and contemporary material palette.

Drawing from the solid and brutalist structure of the building, a sense of contrast and warmth serves as the foundation for the design of the space, enhanced by a high degree of craftsmanship. Together with specialized graphics by Tom Clayton, Sans-Arc Studio reimagines the traditional coffee offering, maximizing impact through a deliberately conscious approach. The resulting sense of calm is achieved through diffused lighting and subtleties in textures, enlivened by interplay with light throughout the day.
