Artichoke showcases interior architecture, design, objects, people and products. Australia’s most engaging interior architecture and design magazine, it presents inspiring examples of design excellence and engaging discussion of design issues to industry professionals and a broader audience of design-savvy consumers. The excellent photographs, informed comment from leading practitioners and thinkers, and complementary product information means that each issue brings you a special slice of what’s happening and what matters in the design world today.
The essence of the design has been the concept of "a garden within a Library" which respects the relationship of the former St Brigid’s Library and Blackburn Gardens, and the Library as a community hub with a variety of spaces for undertaking different activities and services.
The Library has been cleverly designed over three levels using a flexible floor plan for changing future needs and incorporating the use of zones for different activities and programs.
