Located within the bluestone walls of Pentridge Village, a Melbourne historical site and former prison decommissioned in 1997, is the Jury Cafe with an interior by Biasol Design Studio.

“As an interior design project, Jury presented several unique challenges to our studio: we wanted to respect its dark past as a prison, and we also wanted to breathe new life into the cafe for its patrons to enjoy.” say the designers.

“The theme of irreverence led us to play with ideas – ideas that created a contrast between dark bluestone walls and a palette of bright colours and blond timbers.”

Along with these ideas of colour, we used a mix of raw materials, plywood, structural timbers and concrete that allowed us to form a geometric colour pattern within the feature wall of Jury.”

“This structure created a playful effect, one that brought the site to life and allowed it to move on from its dark past, as well as embrace a sense of fun for the future.”

“We softened the space further by adding greenery from Pop Plant; we also designed bespoke tables and stools that are, again, all made from natural materials.”
