Morris and Heath is a 125 square meter hospitality project set in Hoppers Crossing on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia.

The project was driven by the need to create a place of refuge in contrast to the vast expansiveness of eucalyptus forests and precast concrete that the site surrounds. The project developed out of a desire for greater human scale seeks to create a destination for the surrounding suburbs.

The project is contextualised in its use of Spotted Gum Timber juxtaposed to milled steel and concrete. Timber battens veil the interior from an exhausting industrial landscape whilst reflecting the natural and creating relief to shoppers. Leather cushions drape over orthogonal furniture cushioning the body over a coffee or two.
