A large light-filled studio on the first floor of a 1950s warehouse in North Melbourne is available now. The studio is 6.3x7.5m, private and lockable, with a concrete floor and a high trussed roof with a large skylight. Would suit one practitioner who needs a lot of space or two artists who are happy to share.
The studio is on the first floor of a large warehouse which is shared by a small number of creatives including visual artists/textile artists. All studio residents are professional practitioners. Presently, there are five who use the space who range in age from mid 20s to late 40s.
Double doors from this available studio open onto a huge common space which includes a lounge area, basic kitchen, an open dining space and basic bathroom. There are large openable windows from the common area that look out over rooftops to North Melbourne town hall.
Monthly rental includes wifi access, electricity and all outgoings, plus access to a coffee pod machine, but if you prefer real coffee, the studio is a two-minute stroll to numerous cafes and eateries including Twenty & Six, The Auction Rooms and Beatrix famous cake shop. It is also close to Errol St shops, the Town Hall Hotel and Joe Taylor if you fancy Friday night drinks.
The studios sit alongside Gallerysmith Project Space, which hosts Saturday afternoon drinks every fortnight or so, and you would be most welcome to take a break from the studio to join us at these events.
Noise is limited to occassional chatter among other studio users and a bit of sewing machine noise.
The building is very secure and has 24 hour access.
Rental due on the 10th of each month.
This studio is part of a shared floor and respect for the quiet work practices of those around is crucial. Accordingly, this space would not suit sculptors who work with timber or metal (assemblage is fine) or artists who use power tools (ie. sanders), toxic chemicals, abundant thinners or anyone who plays loud music.
Leave the space upon vacating as you found it upon arrival.
Ample two hour street parking on doorstep.
