Brisbane, the wait is over. No more trawling through the the inner city markets and pop ups to see where we’ll be frantically scooping for a day – we’ll soon have permanent gelato digs, so you can come and visit us whenever your heart desires.
With the potential to be our flagship store, this beauty is one of our designers proudest moments. Nick Palumbo; Messina’s founder and self described ‘frustrated architect’ has created quite the masterpiece, along with Vie Studio – amping up his design specs to do justice to The Melbourne Residences brand new retail space. The vibe is juxtaposed somewhere between an Apple Store and your (cool) grandma’s retro living room – with 9m high concrete walls and ceilings, 70’s mahogany panels and geometric wooden built in cake cabinets. It wouldn’t be a Messina store without polished concrete floors, an expansive bright red cabinet filled with 35 flavours and 5 specials and a whole lotta light streaming in from the floor to ceiling glass.
