The Sharing House, Melbourne

Block-rocking eats...

Update: The Sharing House is now closed.

Assemble hundreds of wooden blocks and thousands of Lego bricks, screw on one cavernous metallic roof – the result is the marvellously put together restaurant The Sharing House in Melbourne.

The South Wharf Promenade venue is all about small components making up the big picture; the dishes by Young Chef of the Year Mark Briggs are bite-sized and designed for collective eating, but the main reason we have for surveying this construction project is the clever architecture and interior design. The shell is a riverside cargo shed, but inside has hatched a contemporary and imaginative environment, where everything fits together perfectly.

The bar is the obvious eye-catcher, built (as we’ve previously seen on a boardroom table) with Lego bricks giving a multi-coloured Tetris effect that is much more than the average kid in his bedroom could manage. Backing the bar is a huge jigsaw of wooden blocks which complements the plastic pattern below nicely. Look further and the cubic theme continues through to the main area, white tiled bricks are layered to surround the kitchen for example. The Sharing House proves once and for all that it’s hip to be square…
