Abstract (in English)

In 2003 fire destroyed a famous Melbourne kiosk. The controversy regarding its possible reconstruction was addressed by a retrospective assessment of its social (intangible) and other heritage values. Thes values echoed those of both ancient and seaside pavilions: it was a place of musing, intimate meetings, and more boisterous gatherings. Its modest ornamental form, its big natural setting, and its affordable refreshment, were important for promenaders. It was determined that the spirit of the place could be transmitted by a high quality reconstruction, reinstatement of the cafe, and interpretation.
