The $9 million project will transform a 150-year-old building on Light Square into a huge arts and food hub, including a restaurant helmed by ex-d’Arenberg Cube chef Brendon Wessels.
The 150-year-old four-storey building at 63 Light Square (formerly Live on Light Square) is being transformed into a live performance space, restaurant, “community-focused” cafe, and outdoor bar and performance area set to open in the new year.
Founders Nick and Sophie Dunstone have teamed up with high-profile event and hospitality figures Jordan Jeavons, Brendan Wessels, Richard Gunner and Simon Bryant to bring the $9 million project – Light – to life.
Multi-genre live venue, The Lab, will feature an all-encompassing program – curated by Music SA chair Anne Wiberg – from live bands, DJs and classical performances to experimental visual arts and tech. The “digitally immersive experience” will include full height surround LED screens with the ability to “transport the artists and audiences to any place, real or imagined”.
