Bpangerang Country




The revitalisation of a cafe space into an appealing and functional new dining destination.

Included in the brief for one of our first projects as a Studio was the re-painting of the previously tired venue to reveal a fresh new face.

We designed a lighting plan for all spaces within the building and refurnished the cafe using original iconic furniture items from both Kartell and MUUTO.

Clever co-ordination of trades and suppliers meant that DOCS was only closed for a week, and trade has since increased significantly. The result was beneficial for both our clients and the people of Corowa, who now have a city-slick cafe of their own, right in the centre of town.


We acknowledge the Bpangerang, Wiradjuri, Jaitmatang, Yorta Yorta and Waveroo people on whose country we work and create. ​We also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians throughout Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander lands where our projects are placed. We recognise their ongoing connection to Country, land and waters that were never ceded and pay our respects to Elders, past, present and emerging. Our Reconciliation Action Plan was developed with Reconciliation Australia and guides us on our reconciliation journey and that of our clients, collaborators and community.
