Bond Store Studio

Type of space: Co-Working Space, Design Studio, Film Editing Suite, Office Space, Performance venue, Rehearsal Space, Sound Recording Studio

    Hi there,

    Our space is a charming, rustic, heritage space inside one of the famous Bond Store buildings down in Walsh Bay, Sydney (near The Rocks).  It has the vibe of a New York loft style apartment.  There is a main area with incredible large cargo doors and a large striking wool bay trolley etc. (which we use as a coffee table).  The main area has a kitchen, dining table, lounges, desk and grand piano.  We then have three sound-proof sound studios, also rustic in architecture, however currently fitted with more modern furniture and sound equipment.

    Our space is currently being used as a music & sound studio in the advertising/TV industry.  One of our studios is currently vacant, ready to lease on a medium-long term basis to anyone in the creative services industry.  Whether you are a grader, editor, architect, animator, artist; a creative practioner of any kind, come by and have a chat.  We are a small-scale, fun, easy-going team of music composers and sound engineers.  Your lease will include the same services as the rest of the team, namely all amenities such as tea/coffee/snacks, phone reception service, 24/7 access, hi-speed ADSL2 internet, and the building also has a shower.  Not only is it a beautiful space in which to work, it is a rocking space to bring clients to.

    The Walsh Bay location itself is gorgeous and a real creative hub - lots of agencies, production companies and media houses all around - and of course beloved pubs like the Lord Nelson, Hero of Waterloo, Hotel Palasaide & The Glenmore!  Our studio is on Hickson Rd and right by bus/train/ferry public transport.

    Our third studio is 14m2 (4.2 x 3.6m), also with direct line of sight to the voice recording booth should you require this service.  The room is currently set up as follows (this can be modified to suit individual requirements and alternative creative services):

    • iMac 27" Desktop Computer
    • Genelec Speakers & Monitoring System
    • RME Fireface Interface
    • Focusrite Microphone Pre-Amps

    • Latest Protools & Logic Software, including massive suite of plug-ins, SFX
    • Latest Microsoft Office programs
    • Large Desk

    • Voice Booth Set-Up:  Senheiser 416, Neumann 87 & suit of AKG Microphones + more

    As mentioned the above is the current set-up, and can be modified as required.

    We look forward to hearing from you!
