PARK STREET COLLECTIVE
Located in North Carlton overlooking the capital city bike trail opposite Green Park Dining, The Park Street Collective is home to a multi-disciplinary group of design led professionals.
Founded in 2015 by HIP V. HYPE, The Collective is comprised of two interconnected wings doubling as both studio work spaces, design product showrooms and event spaces.
The West Wing, designed by Archier, doubles as a workspace for HIP V. HYPE and a showroom for Archier’s bespoke furniture and lighting.
The East Wing, conceived as a project between HIP V. HYPE and Inkster founder, Hugh Altschwager, doubles as a share space for creative types as well as a showroom for Inkster’s bespoke South Australian limestone lighting pieces and other handcrafted products.
Each wing has its own timber window front opening towards a northern aspect thanks to Binq, a local window manufacturer that matches European technology with local innovation and material to deliver highly sustainable window solutions.
The Collective is united by a simple aim – to create better products, services, buildings and cities.
The Park Street Collective has successfully attracted a core group of like-minded members seeking to generate projects and services defined by substance, genuine interaction and meaning.

Hip – can’t be faked.
Hype – don’t believe it.
Hip and Hype can be confused – substance is the defining point of difference. You can believe the Hype or you can choose something else. We choose something else. We choose to opt into a considered and engaged approach to development. Great buildings, intimate spaces, a desire to improve our urban environment and maximise cultural capital.
Because we deserve better.
