This space is ideal for visual and performing artists, musicians, bands or those wishing to make use of their own large, private, indoor space. Dimensions: 8.5m x 5m. Accommodates 1 - 4 people.

Encircled by beautiful Tasmanian Oak, this upstairs room is spacious and cozy, perfect for conjuring up new ideas. Gallery lighting and a roof skylight provide a great setting to write, draw, design, and work late into the night. Dimensions: 6m x 4m. Accommodates 1 person.
