Australia St. Studio
An inner west creative space
The Australia Street Studio is an open-plan, warehouse style creative commercial space.
The space is used by architects, builders, graphic and web-designers, online developers, print solutions specialists, and small business start-ups.
The original Art Deco building was Sydney’s Studebaker Garage. The design retains some of its original features, such as the glazed tile service pit, while creating a comfortable, airy and modern space to work in. The studio is laid out so that separate businesses can operate under one roof: individual workstations are pushed to the perimeter walls, while a shared library running through the centre of the space gives the space a communal vibe.
The studio’s meeting space sits on a raised level, which gives it views of the park opposite and provides a sense of separation from the adjacent workstations. Air conditioning is delivered to the space via a central, exposed oval duct system.
In 2011 the space took on a major renovation, to develop the second level as a brand new commercial space, joined by a central stairwell. The original skylights and wooden beams were retained, while new walls, ceiling, floors and desk space was designed and developed. In addition, downstairs had a much needed make over, to include a state-of-the-art kitchen, a second washroom, new shelving and a full exterior paint job.
The share space features ADSL 2+ High Speed Internet, custom built kitchen, two individual toilets, storage room, Shared Printer/Photocopier/Fax, meeting tables, front and rear lane access, reverse air-conditioning, close to public transport, 24hr secure access.
