STAY AT THE HIVE
The Hive Graffiti Apartments is a world first Hip Hop building. A larger than life concrete graffiti relief façade complete with arrows, swooshes and drips has been knitted into the existing heritage brick shell of an old Carlton shop. An urban street is celebrated by making permanent this ephemeral art. The interior has been shaped by the expressive hip hop language of the façade, remnants of the existing brickwork, beehive patterned travertine floors and designer furniture selection. One of the three apartments is now available for short stay rental. This spacious 75 sqm one bedroom apartment can easily convert into two bedrooms with a sofa bed. Enjoy Melbourne from this inner city secluded street art haven, complete with aerosol art, turntable and 70s b&o h- fi system.
