Birds' nests inspired the facade of this Singapore cafe by designers Outofstock, where eggs are served all day.
The bright yellow web of rope matches the colour of seats outside, as well as the handle of the wooden door.
Floorboard offcuts are stacked up to create a bar on the ground floor and other surfaces are picked out in chunky chipboard.
Irregularly shaped lighting fixtures decorate the walls on the upstairs floor, which the architects liken to hatching eggs or peeled potatoes.
This is the second Hatched restaurant that Outofstock have created, following one with egg-shaped holes in the walls from 2010.

Hatched at Holland Avenue by Outofstock
Following the popularity of the first Hatched restaurant, Singapore and Barcelona based design collective Outofstock was recently commissioned to design a second restaurant at 267 Holland Avenue, Singapore.
Located in a two-storey historical shophouse in Holland Village, the design of this egg-themed, all-day breakfast restaurant is based on the concept of a nest. The intention behind the design was to inject more colour and playful elements into the new restaurant, building upon the warm and cozy barn house atmosphere of the original establishment, also designed by Outofstock.
The nest facade was realized with yellow braided rope woven around a steel frame with laser-cut holes. This steel frame also holds up the glass panels and a floor-sprung rough-sawn timber door.
The restaurant uses mostly original lighting and furniture designed by Outofstock, such as the Naked chair, produced by Bolia and the Biscuit stool and table, produced by Environment.
The bar counter is composed of offcuts from teak wood floorboards. The floorboards were used to compose a herring bone pattern, hence the almost perfect triangular offcuts.
Abstract wall lighting fixtures which could be interpreted as hatching eggs or peeled potatoes act as conversation pieces on the upper floor of the restaurant.
