TEMPO RUBATO year: 2018 - 2019
Tempo Rubato is a live classical music venue and bar in Brunswick inserted within the ground floor of a 1960’s brick warehouse. Poly Studio designed a minimal fit-out to suit a very low budget with the potential for incremental alterations and additions over time to suit the evolving use of the space. The key design interventions include a new bank of toilets which divides the front of house bar from the performance space, as well as a lighting layout which deploys a grid of different light types and orientations to demarcate the various zones within an on otherwise open floorplate.
