An existing warehouse abutting the main northern rail line in Fortitude Valley is re-purposed as a collection of flexible event spaces downstairs and shared creative studio tenancies upstairs. The primary task was to create a memorable identity and atmosphere for the building and its interior spaces whilst leaving things open-ended enough to allow for any sort of event or end use without significant modification or restraint upon theming.
Particular attention has been paid to giving the building a “blank canvas” exterior, communicating its intended persona, whilst ensuring the internal spaces have “strong bones” with scope for endless change accommodated within volumes that retain their integrity and spatial quality even when empty.
