hotels & hospitality


Located in the inner city suburb of North Melbourne, Auction Rooms is a café, restaurant and bar with an in-house coffee roastery. It takes its name from the original WB Ellis Auction House previously on the site, and retains some of the spirit of its former life.

The large, lofty building has been divided into different seating pockets, including an internal courtyard, adding variety and intimacy to the space while retaining the open, industrial feel. Many of the interior finishes were salvaged from the Public Office project to be reused and reinterpreted in this fit out.
