Irene Community Arts Warehouse
Irene is a community arts warehouse, located in a redundant lingerie factory in Brunswick, in Melbourne's inner north. Irene was the brand name of the underwear that was made here, and it's still the name above the door.
The former Irene Lingerie factory is a two-storeyed sawtooth-roofed modernist brick factory expressed as a box-like element, with alternating windows and solid spandrels, elevated on a recessed plinth. It was erected in 1963-64 for Tena Lingerie Pty Ltd, to the design of Polish-born and British-trained architect Anthony Hayden.
The factory is of architectural and aesthetic significance to the City of Moreland.
