Photographer's Note

Photo taken of "Third Wave" beach kiosk just after it opened for morning trade (23rd Oct 2012).

"The Third Wave Kiosk is located at the Torquay Foreshore. The Third Wave of Coffee refers to a current movement to produce high-quality coffee, and consider coffee as an artisanal (sic) foodstuff, like wine, rather than a commodity, like wheat.

This involves improvements at all stages of production, from improving coffee bean growing, harvesting and processing to stronger relationships between coffee growers and coffee traders and roasters, to higher quality and fresh roasting, at times called micro roasting to skilled brewing. "

"The Third Wave Kiosk, designed by Tony Hobba Architects, won Best Café Design at this year’s (2012) Eat-Drink-Design Awards, presented in Melbourne last month. It was built through the Great Ocean Road Coastal Committee’s Tourism Facilities Project and opened last December.
Judges said the design by the Bellbrae firm translated the stereotypical Australian beach kiosk into an architectural icon."
"“Striking and uncompromising siting ensure the building stands out on the shore line, yet the predominant use of Corten steel allows it to blend visually with the landscape, and continue to weather sympathetically with it. ""
"“The shape and surface suggest, but never mimic, maritime references, or worn found objects from a coastal stroll. Structure and function have been handled integrally, so that the additional ablution facilities sit unobtrusively, giving prominence to the ‘welcome’ of the kiosk servery.""
