The Ugly Duckling is a minimalist restaurant located in Melbourne, Australia, designed by Hecker Guthrie. Their current body of work rests within the hospitality, residential, retail and commercial sectors. The studio work both locally and abroad and each design draws on their expertise in integrating interiors, building, objects and gardens. Tucked into the evolving intersection of Swan and Church Streets, The Ugly Duckling represents all that is Melbourne; clean yet theatrical, a touch of nature, nods to the past and of course, a good drink.
