Editor’s Notes

Why we love it…

In the heart of Melbourne, this institution is innovation meets heritage, combing exposed brick, green marble, and beautifully framed arched windows, the space is the ultimate CBD warehouse conversion. Contemporary 15 meter high ceilings leave an ever-lasting impression.


For the couple…

Who are looking for an industrial city space with split levels to create a unique reception event to dine and dance.


Styling tips…

Take inspiration from the notes of black across the interior styling and create a moody palette with midnight hues accented by flickering candlelight and soft ethereal flowers. Ensure you utilize the loft space for an intimate lounge area.
