    Event description

    Step into the future of working with an exclusive tour of 116 Rokeby by architecture and design practice, Carr, on Wednesday April 17th. 

    In our first Naarm/Melbourne QHouse for 2024, Carr will unveil their latest project: 116 Rokeby Street, a 10-level commercial office building developed and built by Figurehead.

    Nestled in the heart of Collingwood, 116 Rokeby isn't just a building; it's a ‘breathing space’ embodying the future of innovation, environmental responsibility, and inclusivity. Here, design meets purpose and every element tells a story of sustainability, indigenous heritage, and community inclusiveness.

    This is your opportunity to experience first-hand the transformative power of architecture in shaping a better, more inclusive future. 

    This event is generously empowered by Carr, Space, and Figurehead. We also extend our thanks to our ongoing event partners, Studio White Noise and Zesty Events.
