Project Description


The Timber Yard, Port Melbourne


The Timber Yard is an event space that has utilised the heritage of the existing buildings on site to create a very unique space in Melbourne’s event scene. Utilising the existing buildings of a second hand timber storage and fabrication yard from the days when Port Melbourne was an industrial hub, provided many challenges. The team who envisaged the reutilisation of the space worked with XtheT and other consultants to meet the building regulation (NCC2016) requirements for its proposed use.

The Timber Yard is a dynamic and flexible space that provides a myriad of social spaces.

Rather than erase the history of the building, the proposal utilised and repurposed existing materials highlighting the industrial origins. The buildings is truly raw and authentic and pays homage to its history.
