    Cool studio's are a community residing in a warehouse, with creative's working in props, textiles, shoe making, sculpture, painting, woodwork and a soundproof music studio. 

    Just 10 kilometres from the CBD, Cool Studio's Workshop is situated in one of the old manufacturing warehouses that were for a time prolific in Brunswick – it has now become an inner-city space for people to get their hands busy, to build and create.

    The Cool Studio's Workshop is suitable for emerging and/or established artists, furniture makers, tailors, crafters. The Workshop currently houses twelve workspaces. The space will suit practices that include a diverse range of creative mediums involving light industrial or mechanised processes or machines with low noise/vibrational emissions, artisanal tools for making or working with solvents, dyes, clay and pigments.

    Practitioners who work with hot industrial techniques (such as welding), or practices requiring/using heavy equipment or machinery are not suitable for either of these spaces.

    The studio's include multiple electrical outlets, free wifi (NBN), and tenants have access to shared kitchenette facilities and bathrooms.

    Location: 162 Victoria Street, Brunswick

    Price: $5.50 inc GST per square meter per week (includes Wi-fi and all utilities). Plus a Bond (one month's rent). Depending on the type of practice, utility charges may or may not be included in rental rate (for example if a kiln is required).

    Lease Term: 3-6 months+ (depending on lease needs, based on practice)

    We have a short waiting list - come in for a tour!
