墨尔本的这家熟食店内设有石膏表面和铺砌石材地板，Studio Esteta的设计旨在反映她的意大利血统。Via Porta集熟食店、咖啡馆和餐厅于一体，他们想要创建一个家庭经营的场所，让人想起他们与意大利祖母一起烹饪的童年时光。
Plaster surfaces and paved stone floors feature inside this deli-cum-eatery in Melbourne, which Studio Esteta’s co-director has designed to reflect her Italian roots.Via Porta, which incorporates a deli, cafe and dining room, is the brainchild of Studio Esteta’s co-director, Sarah Cosentino, and her three brothers.Together, with the help of the studio team, they wanted to create a family-run venue that was reminiscent of their childhood years spent cooking with their Italian grandmother.
The ground floor of Via Porta has been made to resemble one of Italy’s quaint cobbled alleyways. Sand-hued plaster covers the walls, while the floor has been paved over with stone offcuts saved from a local landfill.
One side of the room features tall wooden shelves that openly display artisanal cooking ingredients. The other boasts a grooved timber bar with a veiny marble countertop, where customers can sit and grab a coffee or enjoy one of the cafe’s European-style lunch dishes.
Additional seating is provided by an adjacent sage-green banquette and a handful of bistro-style chairs.
Rough blocks of limestone form a chunky service counter at the rear of the deli area that’s used to present the assortment of cold meats and cheeses.
Another small dining room lies upstairs on the cafe’s mezzanine level, which is fronted by a Juliet balcony.
The front facade of the cafe has been painted off-white, contrasting against Via Porta’s black signage – its font is meant to subtly nod to the typography of Italian street signs.
