The Station at Southport

Our clients, Co Spaces & IEDM, have developed this building over time, resurrecting it from oblivion some years ago. The building has been slowly morphed into a 21st century multi-purpose facility with state of the art technology throughout.

Over the past few years, Renowned has been fortunate enough to be involved with a couple of turnkey fit outs. As a smaller company, our ability to flex and work with groups such as the guys from Co-Spaces & IEDM makes us quite unique. We all worked together and learned from each other. We collectively designed furniture to suit each space – from the co sharing floors occupied by the guys from the V8 Supercar group to individual desks to boardrooms and directors offices.

As the building appeared in the 1980’s before restoration.

The earliest picture we can find of the building in its former glory as the original Southport ambulance station. Circa 1920’s.

This is the building today, now restored and repurposed. It now houses coffee shops, shared office spaces, meeting rooms and the latest use, as well as a place for private intimate music meets.

I recently attended a function where famous Aussie rocker, Russell Morris, played for a crowd of just 40 people! Meeting the 70’s/80’s 90’s and today’s legend was a real treat, feet on the ground and still pumping out new stuff.

Here is Russell doing his stuff! The building was a perfect venue for this inaugural event. I hope to be invited to more of those!!
