This single storey building, built in 1954, houses project spaces, workshops, and studios for the School of Architecture and Design.
The large open space of this building was originally constructed as a rubber and tyre warehouse. The showroom section later became the RMIT Union dental service.
The new main entry from Lygon Street is via the former truck entrance, which now enters into a new gallery space. The original roller door remains, and sits halfway down and in front of a new inverted bay window.
