Underground carpark upgrade into arts-space
Assisting a community group with architectural advice
Project Date: 2006
The residents and staff at Melbourne’s Collingwood Housing Estate want to rehabilitate a long disused 3,000 square metre underground car park that had closed in the 1980s because it didn’t have enough exits or ventilation, and because it had a reputation for being dangerous after dark.
In this decade it has started to be used by arts organisations in the area as an exhibition and performance space. However, the space itself needs a lot of work to come up to scratch.
