    River Studios is an award-winning architectural warehouse conversion in West Melbourne. Managed by Creative Spaces, it is a thriving studio facility for artists and other creatives. The 3000sqm building spans over three levels, with lift access. Spaces range from 14m2 to 57m2. 

    There are no studios currently available. Please sign up to the River Studios mailing list to receive email notifications when studios become available. 

    River Studios accommodates a broad range of practises including visual arts, sculpture, photography, making and design. However, due to the open plan of the building, some practices that create fumes such as spray painting are not suitable.

    River Studios is the winner of the 2011 Australian Institute of Architecture (VIC) award for Small Projects. Projects in this category were constrained by space or cost restrictions, but had achieved a level of invention, creativity and craftsmanship.
