Bright Studio Space
Join the Abbotsford Convent studio community
A unique opportunity exists to join Australia’s largest creative community. Just four kilometres from the CBD, the Convent – with its historic buildings and lush surrounds – has become an inner-city sanctuary for creative practitioners and organisations seeking a peaceful, yet vibrant working environment.
The studio is located in the western end of the Convent building's first floor, features city views and measures 10m2. While small, the old Nun’s dormitory has a cathedral-height ceiling window, affording plenty of natural light. The space is ideal for a creative organisation or creative practitioner, whose practice is desk-based and only requires a smaller light filled space.
This tenancy also offers access to shared kitchenette facilities, bathrooms and showers, as well as discounted car parking. Sitting alongside the Yarra Capital Trail, the Convent is also easily accessible on bike or via public transport. The room is self-contained, lockable and has hydronic heating.
Onsite you’ll also find an assortment of delicious food options, food and craft markets, two galleries, and an extensive program of events and workshops all at your doorstep. With more than 100 studios onsite, the Convent is home to some of Melbourne’s finest creatives, organisations and wellbeing practitioners, making this the ultimate place for collaboration and community engagement.
A diverse array of venues for hire are also available within the buildings, with a special discounted rates for tenants, making them the perfect places for meetings, conferences, seminars, workshops or rehearsals.
