Soooo there is just way too much going on in Melbourne this week, which demands TWO POSTS IN ONE DAY.  Who has TIME for this?  Seriously :)

ANYWAY it would be negligent of me not to run this post because The Richmond Weekender is a fabulous idea which y’all should know about… The clever team at Right Angle Studio have been commissioned to run a series of inspired pop-up events in the old Channel 9 television studios in Richmond.  The immense GENIUS of this concept, is that it’s been commissioned by Lend Lease, who have plans to develop the site, and are keen on celebrating the nostalgia of the building and heritage facade (which will be retained when the site is developed in 34 sure-to-be-amazing apartments and townhouses).

The Richmond Weekender comprises events and activities every weekend during March – sadly I missed the Homemakers Market last weekend (pic below), but do pop in to check out the very awesome Graham Canteen (run by Collingwood cafe Cavallero) and Speakeasy pop-up Cinema!  The spaces looks SUPER amazing, having been re-worked by Foolscap Studio and designers Adele Winteridge, Linda Raimondo and Kate Archibald.

All info is on the very cool Richmond Weekender website (love the design of this site!).  Another seriously sexy website worth checking out is the Studio Nine website which outlines the plans for the building re-development.

    Cool use of the building and good to see Lend Lease are encouraging it. I am a local and look forward to the creative development of the site. Like many locals however I have MAJOR concerns about the possible development of an EIGHT level block which was originally capped at five, in an area that otherwise does not go above three.
    The population is rumoured to increase by 40+ percent (though with only 34 residences, that seems a little off the mark), which will have a huge impact on a relatively quiet pocket of this great inner suburb. I just hope Lend Lease continue to act with something other than corporate greed.
    Thanks for the post. Great pics.

    I want to go there now! another great job by the amazing foolscap studio and good to see a developer wanting to make the space usable for the public, even if just for a little while.
