    Stunning Artist Warehouse!

    TOP FLOOR at WELLINGTON is a dynamic space run by two contemporary artists, Izzi S & Emily Parsons-Lord, in the heart of Chippendale's creative precinct.

    A creative space ideal for corporate and offsite meetings, creative development, workshops and training, live works, performance, natural light photo and video shoots, launches and gallery events, rehearsal space and readings, castings, private events, and artist residency. 

    The studio is a large, open space available for developing new work, testing ideas with a private audience, or stretching out with new materials. It includes:

    • Air Conditioning
    • 56.7 metres squared (9m x 6.3m) of studio space with rustic wooden floors
    • 3.5m high ceilings 
    • Floor to ceiling barn doors that open and giant windows
    • 4 x large trestle tables, 30 office chairs, 10 stools 
    • Whiteboard and markers
    • Blackout curtains
    • WIFI
    • Audio system
    • Access to kitchen and bathroom facilities
    • Daily and weekly rates
    • 1 x c-stand

    There is a projector available for hire at an extra fee of $70 per day.

    There is a cat, Dora Carrington, that lives in the studio. She is a rescue cat that has become part of the TOPFLOOR family. She mostly naps out of sight, but she may come out to say hello - she has taken to regular clients much more than us!



    With heavy hearts we have to break the news that Top Floor at Wellington will be shutting its doors at the end of November 2020. We have loved hosting your photo shoots, retreats, workshops and parties over the last 6 years and thank you all so much for your support over that time.

    In the mean time we are still happily taking bookings up until November 30th. Our 18 pax capacity limit is still in place, along with our covid safety plan. We look forward to see you one last time!
