Our rare NZ Rimu wooden floors were covered by ugly office carpet when we first moved in to the Hive. But now the carpet has been ripped up, the boards sanded and smoothed until they shine like new. We have wedged strips of dyed-brown rope between each board to stop drafts and keep the old floor flexible but stable. We found an old scrap of newspaper from the 1950s that someone back then had wedged into a particularly big gap.

The Hive has been great for...

Rehearsals, gigs, meetings and office space

"I met Helen last year and was amazed by what she and her team have created at The QBN Hive. I'm impressed by the art exhibitions, the layout and design of the rooms, the connection to community and creativity, and the scope for the venue to host all sorts of events, from meetings through to gigs. So far at The Hive, I've performed an outdoor concert, held networking meetings on behalf of MusicNSW, rehearsed with my band, and used a room as office space. For each of these things, it's been a brilliant space."
