Andrew Richards Design Events does just that, a beautiful fine outdoor furnishings retailer, with a phenomenal 100 year old location on Adelaide Street East, becomes a magnificent event space within a few short hours. Despite its age the restoration and renovations the building has incurred make the venue on the cutting edge of style and utility.
Andrew Richards Design Events has two event rooms, the Atrium and the Loft which can be rented together or separately. In tandem, the venue can accommodate up to 1,200 guests. While well located, the building also boasts services such as staffing, rentals, bar services, decor, lighting and production, Wi-Fi, parking off-site, and an outdoor function area which allows outdoor catering. The Atrium is a multi-level, airy room with gorgeous chestnut coloured wooden flooring contrasted by modern white and black accents. It is a sophisticatedly stylish while still neutral toned backdrop for any function. A highlight wall features expansive square block shelving which is a timely design element great for framing screens, displaying product, and creating distinct decor choices.
Meanwhile, the Loft provides the ultimate blank canvas, all white walls and flooring alongside noteworthy industrial design elements such as brick, and exposed ductwork, and floor to ceiling windows. This is an open space with an urban atmosphere that so easily lends itself to creating a one of a kind event. Whether combined or separately, Andrew Richards Design Events’ Atrium and Loft are a natural selection for a memorable event.
