In early design phases, Architecture Associates have been engaged to assess the suitability of a number of industrial buildings across the inner-city of Melbourne for the creation of a private sector arts hub.

While the inner suburbs of Melbourne are rich in industrial warehouse building stock, it is becoming increasingly less common to find manufacturing actually occurring in these spaces. Our client, the owner of a large multi-faceted arts business requires a space to manufacture, supply and service the arts industry and wishes to remain in a visible inner city location.

The ambitious proposal will bring together a unique offering of fabrication and making, along side a contemporary art gallery space, and retail for art supplies.

Chapman & Bailey, run by artists, for artists, is a shining light among an increasingly rare business model; one of inclusivity and complete services, made here in Australia. It’s an ecology for the arts sector.

Further sites are being assessed and added to this initial study of Clifton Hill’s notorious Shot Tower, and when a suitable home is found the project will progress into design development and construction.

More to come!
