Creative Space Design Guides (Creative Victoria)


Creative Space Design Guides (Creative Victoria)

Tuesday January 30th, 2024

The Creative Spaces Design Guides have been developed to give creative practitioners, property owners, developers, architects, local councils, designers, builders and more expert advice on how to establish a creative space.

The free guides provide detailed information about how to design and build creative spaces that are fit-for-purpose, reflect global best practice and have a long and sustainable lifespan.
The guides are divided into three parts:
Part 1 – Making Space for Creativity outlines the fundamentals of creative spaces. This guide helps users ‘get started’ in delivering fit-for-purpose creative spaces, and details good design for sustainable spaces.

Part 2 – Principles for Creative Spaces details what infrastructure is needed to create a successful creative space that supports business and creative activity.

Part 3 – Technical Guides provides technical information to support the practical implementation of creative space projects.
An initiative of the Creative State 2025 strategy, Creative Victoria has created the guides in partnership with the City of Melbourne, City of Sydney, and the Office of the Victorian Government Architect.

The guides are a free resource and are available to download from the Creative Victoria website: https://creative.vic.gov.au/resources/creative-space-design-guides
