    Our beautiful light-filled warehouse in the heart of Collingwood is available for events and creative use.

    Our event space is a huge 550m2 double-storey brick warehouse with amazing industrial features- exposed timber beams, polished concrete floors, double-height ceilings, and an abundance of natural light. You can rent the whole 550m2 or each of the 225m2 floors.

    Perfect for any type of short-term event from weddings, birthdays and photo shoots to independent theatre shows, installations, and pop-ups, it is available for dry hire to keep costs down. Included is access to toilets and kitchenettes, while all other equipment hire is the responsibility of the hirer (we can help point you in the right direction though).

    The warehouse is located less than 25m from Smith Street and the 86 tram, has five (5) private carparks and a roller-door, making access very easy.
