River Studios

Architect: Breathe Architecture, 2010

River Studios provides 62 studios, housing 80 artists, in a large warehouse on the edge of the Maribyrnong River in West Melbourne. The concrete shell of the warehouse is untouched, with inexpensive, temporary divisions inserted in a manner that allows them to be easily removed. Designing for growth, flexibility, reuse and disassembly were key aspects of the fit-out strategy.

In 2011, River Studios won the Australian Institute of Architecture (VIC) Award for Small Projects for its level of invention, creativity and craftsmanship.
