The Open Space

Type of space: Makerspace (Shared open space for making), Visual Art Studio, Warehouse, Co-Working Space, Design Studio, Multi-use Space

    Move into our vibrant creative studio in Marrickville! We’ve got a few different spaces available for the right folk, ranging from a 20m2 maker-space to a few desk spaces upstairs. We’re a small and supportive gang of makers, designers and writers who like to share stories and connect over regular shared lunches and endless cups of tea. 


    1 x 20m2 space: Concrete floor, walls on two sides (one painted white stud wall). Available as 20m2 at $230 per week or two 10m2 spaces at $125 per week.

    2 x desk spaces: These are upstairs and have room for shelves behind. $80 per week.

    Prices include basic utilities such as water and electricity and unlimited internet (please chat to us if you use lots of power).



    The space is currently shared by The Fortynine Studio and The Planthunter. It’s big, light-filled and full of plants! We have a little shared kitchen, bathroom, and a sunny patch of concrete for lunches out the back. Think laid back office, think materials and making, think plants.

    With an object design studio and online mag, the space is used for making work in various materials. We make a lot in ceramics, have a glazing room, and kilns here that are fired regularly. We also have tools and equipment for working in timber, metal and paper that get used more occasionally. We don't make a lot of noise, so upstairs is suitable for office or desk work.

    A workshop space at the front hosts a couple of monthly workshops, and can be used intermittently for photoshoots or other temporary uses.
