Central Space
Our central space can hold 30 people in a variety of table and seating set-ups. We can make one long table for a meeting, class or dinner, break it up into separate tables for smaller group workshops, or arrange seats in rows for talks and wedding ceremonies.

The alcove is to the left of our central space. This can be used as a breakout area and can sit up to 10 people at a table, or in a circle of chairs. The alcove can also be combined with the central space for a larger group.

The nest is a cosy room at the bottom of the stairs that can seat up to 4 people on sofas or at tables.
It can be used as a private working area or retreat room and is easily transformed into into a cubby hole with toys for the kids.

Here we have a lofted living room space with a desk and sofa at the top of the stairs. This can be used as another breakout space, model hair & make up or dressing room area or just another space to relax or work. This space is made available upon special request and not currently available for parties or events.

We provide a spacious open kitchen with cooking utensils, a double sink and a gas stove. We also provide a microwave, a toaster, cutlery, crockery, tea and coffee. Our space is the perfect venue for cooking classes.

We are professional photographers. Please ask about our event photography services!
