Multipurpose and mixed-use rooms aren't anything new. Whether it's for residential or business, they've been around for a very long time as the concept marries versatility of a certain area and being able to make the most of every valuable square meter. Does your house or condo unit serve more than just being your home? Take inspiration from these retail stations to improve your personal space: 

Restock Curiosities

Tucked in a quiet corner in Makati is Restock Curiosities, a quaint coffee shop with warm and industrial interiors that will make you feel at home. However, this place is more than just specialty coffee and pizzadillas, another great thing about Restock is that you can buy every piece of art displayed around the store—most of which are made by local artists. 

Restock Curiousities is located at 7635 Guijo Street, Makati City. You can call them at 0917-663-1011. 

55 Square Café

It's safe to say that coffee and art go together—a lot of people seem to enjoy a hot cup while trying to interpret beautiful pieces. If you're fond of doing the same thing, 55Square Cafe will be your new favorite hangout. This up and coming hub for delicious brew takes pride in serving only the best varieties of coffee and sharing space with Vongarde Art Gallery who plan on becoming a bridge of sorts between new artists and prospective buyers, too. 

55Square Café is located at G/F ALCAL Bldg. 285 Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City. For inquiries, you can email them at hi.55squarecafe[at] For Vongarde Art Gallery, you can send messages through e-mail at vongardeartgallery[at]
