Red Room in Ripponlea

Type of space: Office Space, Design Studio, Visual Art Studio

    Would you like to share this beautiful studio behind the 100 year old Brinsmead Pharmacy? It is a florist and artificial flower supplier that has a red room at the back to share, with another, a designer. It is currently a creative studio, a design office.  It has high ceilings, polished wooden floorboard and natural light. its brick walls insulate for warm winters and cool summers.

    There is a bathroom/toilet and a sink/ kitchen area.

    The location is set in the trending shopping area of Ripponlea next to beautiful cafes, restaurants and shops in a very village style relaxed area.

    3 min walking access to the train station that takes you to the city centre in 10 minutes.

    Having been looking for years for great spaces/studio/office, this space in Ripponlea is the best I’ve seen.  The studio is a shared back room, painted red, of one of the oldest Art Nouveau buildings left in Melbourne.

    I would be looking at $420 a month, which would cover heating (extra for broadband). The windows are glazed, but in summer the door opens to a nice (but needs work) courtyard.

    I'm only looking to use the space 2-3 days a week. We could time-share or just share - looking for just one other creative person. It would make a cosy, warm space for a writer.

    There is access via the backdoor, so if you just want to operate separately and don’t rely on a front door, that is possible. If you want to share part of the front shop for display or advertising reasons, that can be discussed.

    Photos show potential of space and not my equipment for privacy reasons.
