Bright And Airy Hard Loft
⚘ Hey Beautiful! ⚘⚘⚘
I’m glad you found us, we’ve been waiting for you.
Welcome to HAVNLOFT, your sigh-of-relief, green dream, golden hour retreat.
We know you’re tired of being cooped up. Lucky for you, this is a nice place to weather whatever is going on outside.
All creators welcome.
The prospect of the space inspiring your next project really gets us going.
During this time, we’re doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19.
In addition to sanitizing between each booking, we are only accepting intimate groups and appreciate you inviting essential crew members only.
If the date you were hoping for isn’t available, please reach out anyways.
We have some lovely friends in the building with equally lovely spaces and we’d be happy to connect you. ❀
We’re looking forward to creating with you - in the meantime, have a look through the very important information below. We’ve done our best to answer the FAQs, but are always looking to improve and happy to answer your burning questions!
Some fun facts:
This space is lovingly curated by a fellow maker, and is intended as a haven for all creative craftsfolk. It is ideal for photography, videography, intimate yoga sessions, private workshops, client meetings, thai massage, and reiki.
Towering ceilings, massive factory windows, white walls, and original hardwood flooring.
The loft-life dream.
An all-day glow from north-facing windows makes this the perfect spot for natural-light sessions, but we’ve got nothing against strobes so bring em’ if you got em’!
Fur details and gold accents give this otherwise relaxed space a luxurious feel.
Think.. Saucy hippy. ⚘
A more serious note:
I hope you make yourself at home in the studio, but appreciate your respect of the space, the rules and procedures, as well as the other residents. This building houses many residents who love nothing more than the peace and quiet they signed up for.
If you’re creating too much of a disturbance, it is likely you will be visited by building security and asked to leave. Please help me maintain the warm fuzzy relationship I have forged with my wonderful neighbours and landlords ♥
You’re welcome to configure the furniture to your liking, but PLEASE LIFT - NO DRAGGING. This helps maintain the floors and the couch legs. If anything is damaged, it will be resolved through your damage deposit.
Make yourself at home! Help yourself to:
Paper rolls ( 4ft Beige + Yellow + Bubblebum Pink + Lavender)
Saje Diffuser - Oil Blends located in the door of the fridge :)
Coffee & Tea (kettle is on the stove, coffee maker is a single cup machine.)

⚘⚘⚘ Mandatory Reading: COVID POLICIES ⚘⚘⚘
I’m working hard to ensure your safety, and the safety of everyone in the building :)
This is a community of people who truly care about you and appreciate your respect of the rules. Let’s help each other stay safe so we can continue to create.
MASKS ARE REQUIRED TO ENTER BUILDING.
The studio is carefully sanitized before and after each booking. All high touch and traffic areas are disinfected regularly, though I ask that you do your part by:
1. REMOVING YOUR SHOES & WASHING YOUR HANDS IMMEDIATELY UPON ENTRY
2. ALL CREW MEMBERS & TALENT MUST WEAR A MASK UNTIL BEING PHOTOGRAPHED
3. BRING YOUR OWN DISHES/UTENSILS/CUPS TO ENSURE EVERYONE’S SAFETY (I will provide disposable upon request)
4. MAX 6 PERSON CAPACITY (please limit non-essential people on set)
I’ve provided heaps of soap, sanitizer and disinfectant for your convenience!
+ Lotion because we know with all that washing you might get a little crispy ;)
Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions!
I’m always looking to improve and make things more comfortable for everyone.
THINGS TO NOTE:
This building is beautiful. Mostly because it’s old, and therefore full of character & charm.
With old buildings come unique quirks. By renting this space, you accept her in all her old creaky beauty. ❁❁❁
☐ THE AC WORKS HARD BUT THE SUMMER HEAT WORKS HARDER
The studio is HOT, I know.
Prior to me installing a humble AC unit (check out that sweet dad-job) it was THIRTY-SEVEN degrees in here.
I have done everything in my power to cool this giant greenhouse down, but things tend to get a bit steamy. Dress accordingly, you’ve been warned.
➤ THE PIPES ARE OLD. THEY ARE SENSITIVE. SENSITIVE LIKE YOUR SWEET GRANDMA. BE GENTLE WITH THEM.
Please do not flush unflushable things down my toilet, or pour unsinkable things into my sink.
➤ THE TUB/SHOWER IS ALSO SENSITIVE AND ABSOLUTELY OFF LIMITS.
I know it’s pretty. Please look but don’t touch.
I’ve had issues with flooding in the past, and like I said before, I really love my downstairs neighbours. Do not use the shower.
➤ THE WALLS ARE THIN.
My neighbours appreciate a good time. They also appreciate you not going nuts with the volume on the Bose speaker. Have fun but be respectful.
+ I love *live performances & parties* but unfortunately this is not the space to have them. There are many artists in the building who need quiet to do their best work.
➤ THE LOFT UPSTAIRS IS A PRIVATE SPACE, NO ENTRY IS PERMITTED
I use this for private storage, please do not use it. There are cameras in place to ensure no entry is permitted. You’re welcome to use the stairs for a different perspective!
➤ NO SMOKING, NO FIRE.
Straight forward. Capisce..?
