Dairy Road Canteen

Offering a sensory space to gather and savour ramen, Canteen at Dairy Road, an adaptive re-use precinct of former industrial warehouses, is a metaphorical bridge connecting the community. A collaboration with the Molonglo Group and the tenancy owners Ramen Daddy, Canteen is the final tenancy at Dairy Road. 

Composed as a village-like campus, two pavilions are nested within the tenancy, accommodating the servery and kitchen to one and the bar, noodle making area, and bottle shop to the other. Framed in the in-between space is a banquette seating zone that is akin to an occupiable ruin.
