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, street art by prominent Melbourne and international graffiti artists and designer furniture selection.
The ground floor apartment is available for short term rental on AirBnB. This spacious 75 sqm one bedroom apartment can easily convert into two bedrooms with a sofa bed and privacy screen. Complete with a 1970's Bang & Olufson hi-fi system and record player, you can enjoy Melbourne from this inner city street art haven!
