What ELSe are we up to ?
Here at Hawkseld we are gradually developing our unique site, creating a new hot spot on the Atlantic Highway. A place for you to work, visit, inspire and enjoy. A first glance may conjure up impressions of the past, with Gooseshed, our vintage interior and exterior showroom holding many treasures, all of which are for sale. Gooseshed will also expand it’s wings into the ground floor area of the new extension, with new features and offerings in addition to our vintage poster range.
Our classic roadside inspired, yet globally influenced cafe, Strong Adolfos is serving speciality coffee sourced through Origin Coffee Roasters and the kitchen serves freshly cooked breakfast and lunches daily, famous for delicious homemade burgers and more. See their mouth watering menu here.
Although we are most certainly inspired by the past we are also hoping to bring you our vision of the future where design is simplified, products and materials are up-cycled and given new life, aesthetics and beauty in shape and form are once again appreciated, and where a sense of community and belonging is of utmost importance.
