Mata Design Studio: A Beacon of Creativity


Mata Design Studio distinguishes itself as a boutique local firm that embraces a global perspective, set apart by their dedication to innovation, meticulous attention to detail, and a creative design philosophy. Among their exceptional projects, Bar Vino Mount Lawley stands out, joining a prestigious list of successful endeavors, including various hospitality and residential projects across the Perth metropolitan area.


Elevating Ambiance: Bar Vino Mount Lawley


Bar Vino Mount Lawley is a testament to the transformative power of design. Mata Design Studio has breathed life into this project, crafting an ambiance that whisks patrons into the world of Italian-inspired wine and dining.


The interior design respectfully pays tribute to Mount Lawley’s rich heritage, lovingly maintaining the exterior of the historically cherished corner deli, a favourite with Mount Lawley’s residents since the 1950s. Simultaneously, it introduces a distinctive European design element that evokes cherished memories of international journeys, resulting in a space that seamlessly integrates into the local neighbourhood while further enriching the vibrant culture of Mount Lawley.


Mata Design Studio flawlessly embodies the essence of Good Design at Bar Vino, fashioning a space that seamlessly combines beauty, functionality, and authenticity. Given the daily transformation from Willing Coffee into Bar Vino, the venue’s design gracefully caters to the requirements of both brands while still conjuring a nostalgic Italian and European dining experience.


The Design Matters National Building and Design Awards, presented by the Design Institute of Australia (DIA), represent a prestigious platform recognizing exceptional contributions to the world of design and architecture. Winning the Non-Residential Interiors category speaks volumes of the exceptional work undertaken by Mata Design Studio.


This recognition is well-deserved, reflecting not only the studio’s mastery of their craft but also their commitment to supporting good design.
