Lobb and Frith Studios

Type of space: Visual Art Studio, Design Studio, Makerspace (Shared open space for making)

    Hi all 

    We currently have a 3 x 4m studio space soon to be vacant in our art/design workspace in Brunswick.  The studio has a good supply of natural light and white walls.

    The cost is $65 PW.

    It may be possible to have the space vacated a little earlier than the 18th of July if you want to set up a space sooner

    *Please note that these spaces are not lockable. However they do come with a curtain rail for privacy.

    We operate a very well located art space that's easily accessible via public transport and is very close to the post office, Bunnings, Deans Art, great cafés, fabric stores and other specialty shops all located on and around Sydney Road. 

    Along with your space there is an abundance of work tables for communal use including a framing/construction studio space (including tools and building materials, saws, benches etc) on the east side of the building and extra work bench space at the front. 

    We also supply kitchen amenities for coffee/tea, lunches, drinks etc. Additionally we have a long bay stainless steel sink for cleaning up, bathroom basin and mirror with 2 adjacent toilets.

    We have a roller door entrance for pick ups and deliveries of larger items of work and related supplies.

    We have designed the layout of the studios in an organised grid design with decent sized pathways so that occupants never feel cramped and boxed in. This is also helped by being only a ground floor building. As such it's also easier to bring in/take out items and much easier to exit/enter.  

    As the building has brick walls and is on the ground floor it is better insulated from the summer heat.

    There is a total of 18 studios in the building and a self contained studio apartment on the west side of the building that adds to the security of the building at night.  

    We provide fibre optic internet and all utilities free of charge.  

    We are located on the east side of Sydney rd closer to Brunswick East.  

    All studios contain: Power Point Solid MDF Walls that are dyna bolted to the floor, natural light, sealed concrete floors, and individual lighting. 

    The premises has a long commercial leasehold and we are interested in artists who would like to commit to a lease of the space for a minimum of 3 months as we endeavour to maintain a settled atmosphere, one where the space, it's amenities and fellow inhabitants are valued and respected to encourage a pleasant working experience is had by all.  

    One months rent in advance and bond equivalent to one months rent are required prior to occupying the space.  Rent is paid monthly via online transfer. 

    If you are interested in the space its important you contact us via email only and give a brief description of your creative background, how you would like to utilize the space and intended length of stay. Please contact us at mvbikes@gmail.com.

    Looking forward to meeting you and thanks for checking the add out
