‘Manysquaremetres’ is the latest project for one of my oldest and dearest friends Cassie Lucas, and her design partners Bridget Keane and Jules Ong. It is one of the largest independant studio spaces in Melbourne, and although I may be a tad bias, it is also one of the most beautiful.
Filled with an immense amount of natural light, a complex range of materials (both historical and introduced) it also houses the most spectacular saw tooth roof (referencing back to its days as a wool mill). ‘Manysquaremetres’ is a space that instantly commands your attention. One can not help but to fall in love with it.
Not only did Cassie and I grow up in each others pockets, we also taught design together, along with Bridge, at RMIT University. I remember fondly sitting in our office discussing each stage of their process; from finding the right space to their ‘all-nighters’ constructing it.
Bridge, Cass and Jules have never wavered from their intention. The result is a studio and exhibition space that both encourages and facilitates a diverse range of creative greatness.
Be sure to check out ‘Manysquaremetres’ website to find details on their next exhibition event or to enquire about available studio spaces + desk hire.
