The team at Hecker Guthrie add an element of class to the time honoured tradition of eating ice cream at the sea side.

The younger relation to its more established Collingwood sibling, Piccolina St Kilda by Hecker Guthrie is a fresh invitation to take a stroll back in time to mid-60’s Italy. Perched amongst friendly neighbours, in the beach-culture that surrounds, the space is a veritable sea of pendant lights and exposed green timber and designed to bring people together.

Paying homage to its heritage, and the undisputed Italian la dolce vita, the team at Hecker Guthrie chose materiality that reflects years of gelato making, sharing and indulging. Comprising the familiar ceramic square tiles of yesteryear, with touches of crisp terrazzo, the space is framed out in timber portals. Allowing for the sharing of the process, the open-counter design is mirrored in this hole-in-the wall of goodness.

While aiming to make a clear connection to its predecessor, Hecker Guthrie sought to make a distinction in identity in this new location too. Echoing its connection to the sea and sun, there is a purposed lighter palette used throughout, and a clear connection to its past.
