The Whippet in Melville (as part of Kassa Studio)
With its foundation rooted securely in the historic suburb of Melville, the Harvest Store/café is an urban ‘farm to table’ restaurant. The valuable, art- deco heritage of the building inspired us to design custom elements to compliment and accentuate the existing structure.
The core of the project was to contribute to the already energetic neighbourhood by using local craftsmen. Our aim was to create a welcoming, wholesome space for the inhabitants (and visitors) of Melville to create another activated corner in Johannesburg where people and produce alike can flourish.
