The Arts Centre Melbourne Forecourt Cento Café Competition winner is Cumulus Studio. The design uses the café to create an opportunity for the theatre to have a presence on the street to engage with the passing public and to create a new visitor experience relating to Art Centre Melbourne’s brand. The design plays on the iconic and universally understood element of the theatre curtain as a device to signify 'open' and 'closed'.

Jury member David Islip noted that “the Cumulus submission successfully met the complex brief requirements with efficiency and clarity of design intent.”  The Competition Adviser was Andrew McKenzie of City Lab. The new Cento at Arts Centre Melbourne is expected to open for business by Christmas 2018. Read more about the competition and jury members here External link.
