Designed as a space that evokes the sense of the universe beyond, Lightyears is a local Melbourne eatery that subtlety references both the environment and experience of the inter-planetary universe.


Utilising the existing building shell as the backdrop, the material insertions playfully reference texture and form of both organic moonscapes and man-made space travel. Coloured film is positioned to play with ambient colour tones, and lighting is used as a backdrop to the action within. Details throughout are simple but considered, allowing the space not to feel overly thematic. 
The space was conceptualised not as a café, but as a space for respite from everyday life. The ‘otherworldliness’ of the interior environment encourages a connection, but also a sense of letting go.
