Saint Cloche

Location: Paddington, Sydney
Year: 2015

Saint Cloche is a gallery and café space located in Sydney’s inner suburb of Paddington.

On a busy corner amongst traditional Paddington terrace houses, an existing 1980’s shop-front has been re-imagined with steel and glass doors opening onto a terrace. The interior palette of polished concrete floors, white plaster walls and carrara marble create a simple background for changing artworks and installations. Monolithic plinths in gloss black, carrara marble, brass and neolith tile, allow varied configurations for exhibitions and events.

A secondary space houses a carrara marble bar that operates as a café during the day and as a service bar during exhibition openings.
