STREAT Cafe, Flemington

STREAT is a social enterprise, that finds homeless or at risk young people and trains them for long term employment in hospitality, through operating food and coffee ‘STREAT’ carts in Melbourne. All of the proceeds from their work go to supporting the training and support program.

Flemington was their fourth site after The University of Melbourne, Melbourne Central and Federation Square. It was the first STREAT location with an existing shopfront. Here Studio collaborated closely with STREAT to design the re-fit on a tight budget and lots of volunteer labour.

After an intense week of cleaning and building,  STREAT Flemington was launched on the 10th of April 2012.

We blogged the construction real-time: here
