Research Group Rooms

A favourite for most in the research community, The Meadow offers three unique spaces designed by researchers and clients for researchers and clients. Set in the historical Castlemaine Malthouse in Southbank, our light-filled inviting spaces encourage honesty and reflective thought as well as creative thinking. Most importantly though, time and time again, the space delivers happy clients.

 

OUR SPACES

We created The Meadow specifically for people who want a fresh, clever and inviting space for research groups and workshops. Click through the images below to explore our spaces and to review further details of each room’s unique personality and features.

The Boardroom is our largest group room, featuring a hand-made board table made from reclaimed basketball court, plenty of space for breaking out into smaller groups and lovely high ceilings.

The most traditional of all of our spaces, The Boardroom is framed by the beautiful original brick archways of our Victorian space and towering tree-filled windows. The design of the space takes inspiration from a naturalist’s study, drawing on themes of exploration and discovery.

Viewing Facilities

Accompanying The Boardroom is the Hunter’s Lodge, our viewing room that’s more country club retreat than police station interrogation. The Lodge seats up to 8 people, and offers both LCD TV or one-way mirror viewing. Viewing room windows can be entirely closed off or left open depending on your requirements.

The Meadow Lounge is perfect for more intimate and creative working groups, featuring a spread of comfortable couches and arm chairs, soft lights and warm furnishings. This space has been specifically designed to encourage sharing, feeling like you’re more at home in your lounge room than participating in a group.

Double doors open into a contemporary and comfortable lounge setting inspired by the colours and textures of the forest floor. The low settings and dappled light promote relaxation and comfort, a feeling of retreat from the day-to-day.

The Patio is a large, bright group and workshop space, with heaps of natural light streaming through original 1880s double archway doors. Featuring a large, square table and plenty of space to display materials, this room is perfect for keeping the energy up.

The Patio brings a little of the outdoors indoors, with exposed brick walls, plants, grassy rugs and charming domestic touches to give the feel of a secret garden amidst the bustle of the city.

The Meadow Common is our welcoming, warm and versatile space that brings the entire Meadow together.

This stunning main area is suitable for everything from creative workshops (for up to 45 participants), corporate events and ‘away days’, functions and events – or even just a pristine contemporary working space. It also doubles as a fresh and welcoming space where respondents are greeted for their sessions.

Character-filled archways, high ceilings and leaf-filled windows are the main features in this sun-drenched open creative space. The room has been styled to create a clean, tranquil feel of a clearing in the forest.

When hiring The Common you’re hiring the entire Meadow, ensuring privacy and giving you the flexibility to use our spaces for however you wish – for breakout work, team exercises or simply a change of scenery.
