‘‘Spaces’’ project spreads to Victoria Harbour
Victoria Harbour’s Docklands Spaces contingent opened their doors last month, providing an insight into their projects.
Although projects started moving into the Lifestyle Working building in October last year, the March 19 event signalled the official welcome to the precinct.
The Docklands Spaces project initially started in April 2013 with a focus on the Waterfront City Piazza. It then expanded to Harbour Town and last year jumped across to the other side of the harbour.
The initiative allows creative enterprises and independent initiatives to access unused spaces on short-term rolling licences on a rent-free basis.
Projects at the Lifestyle Working include Wheel Women, PLGRM, Branch Studio Architects, MUSK, Paradise Music, Marlow and Grump and House House Studio.
Victoria Harbour project director Tim Campbell said Lifestyle Working’s communal spaces, shared meeting rooms and forward-thinking environmental design allowed for cross-pollination of ideas.
“The Docklands Spaces project has furthered the ethos of Lifestyle Working Collins by bringing together a diverse mix of businesses, operating in close proximity to each other,” Mr Campbell said.
“Businesses have moved in to the building and have certainly brought their own energy not only to Lifestyle Working Collins but to the broader Victoria Harbour community.”
