my friend john (foaf) converted a warehouse into a performance / event space called Lightspace in Brisbane. it looks so beautiful. he's done so well! http://bit.ly/4V5AeS I've always wanted to do that. am so jealous! oh the performances he's going to have there. studios upstairs too & coffee. I'd add music & book library. in fact I'd prob just move in upstairs and live there too. might be a bit noisy when the gigs are on though. anyone got a spare couple of mill? & I'd add a little private cinema / projection space - like third-ear in jerusalem http://bit.ly/6ngzGf (they're upstairs in a dvd store) but other than that it'd look like lightspace. perfect. maybe less glam as I have no $ ;) I have notebooks full of little drawings of a space and the things it'd have. one day maybe... I hope he does well with it - he deserves it. good luck! so if anyone needs a nice space for an event in Bris, let him know..
