Bpangerang Country



Initially this project involved a simple design brief; to paint the exterior and interior of a newly purchased café.

Following deeper discussions with the client, Regional Design Service resolved that their vision was to take it a step further, and revitalise the space into an appealing and functional new café.

In addition to the venue being repainted, we designed a lighting plan for all spaces within the building and refurnished 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 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.
