Abbotsford Graphic Design and Typography Studio

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

    If you are a graphic designer or web developer, this is a rare opportunity to grab a shared spot in this amazing one of a kind massive studio at Abbotsford Convent. I know how hard it is to find a really light and bright snappy yet historic spacious space. This huge airy light filled studio will make you feel as though you are in the country,  amidst the tranquility of the Yarra Bend yet a hop and a skip from the CBD. With its amazing history, high gabled wooden ceiling, exposed bricks, and amazing views out over the Yarra Bend.   People are always awestruck by the beautiful light that comes in through the glass roof, and the hydronic heating in winter is perfect. Plus its nice to lunch in the gardens, or grab cake and coffee at the Convent Bakery. You won't actually want to go home. 

    Two graphic designers (or possibly one small graphic design practice) to share The large peaceful 200 m2 would be ideal. The Space is flexible, and tenants will have access to the large light filled gallery/teaching space for client meetings, or to work on larger hands on projects. 

    The studio with its gabled glass atrium roof has a compact kitchen with fridge and microwave, shower and toilets,  a comfy couch and great coffee within a 3 min walk.

    There is an opportunity for you to help create a space that is ideal for everyone. The space is secure and the building is locked at 5.00 pm and on weekends with 24-hour tenant access you are nice and safe. 

    Don't be deterred ... Only small quiet focused typographic classes of 10 students are held in the space  a couple of weeknights per month, and  a couple of weekends a month. These are held in the main gallery space, and are so quiet you wouldn't even know they were happening. 

    The only thing you will need to bring is your own desk and maybe a bookcase. 

    Available right away.
