Rent free garden oasis and workshop available on Hutt Street!
We’ve got a leafy secret garden and workshop in the heart of Hutt Street, ready to be brought to life with a concept just as unique as the space itself!
Built in 1870 during a boom that established the area as a shopping precinct, 189 Hutt Street is a heritage gem. Previously the home of Acacia Arts (which occupied the street-facing building), the rear garden space of the former shop is now ready to be brought to life with your creative concept! This green dream of an oasis occupying the rear of the property is thriving with ivy, a succulent garden, bright geraniums and a large, shady gingko tree, and features a rustic shed – primed for activation as a studio or workshop. Please note, the shop and dwelling are not included in this listing.
You’ll be in great company, located next to Renew Adelaide graduate Atelier Antifragile, tattoo studio Day One and popular dessert hotspot The Sugar Man. With a brand new modern Italian restaurant about to launch right next door, this location is ever-growing with unique and exciting concepts.
Who you are
Renew Adelaide is looking for a concept that can make the most of this hidden gem of a space on the fringe of the CBD. We’re thinking a studio, workshop, tinkering space or destination-based experience that does not heavily rely on foot traffic. Due to the residential surroundings, minimal noise activations are preferred and late-night operations may not be appropriate. There is a toilet onsite, however it is unclear whether this is in working condition and capital upgrades may be required to facilitate this. In this instance, the lessor is very generously offering the tenancy rent-free and will not be contributing any funds to upgrades, however depending on the concept, RA may be able to provide financial support for upgrades to the space.
