Discover LCI Melbourne during Open House Melbourne Weekend. Join a short tour with our current students.  

The campus was originally a wool and textile factory for Foy and Gibson – one of Melbourne’s earliest department stores. Designed by renowned architect William Pitt, the red-bricked factories and warehouses of Foy and Gibson were built over the decades of the late 1800s, and spanned multiple blocks in Collingwood. Australian firm Gray Puksand was briefed to transform the 130-year-old, red-bricked heritage building into a creative campus for students studying interior design, visual art, advertising, fashion, and filmmaking. The campus walls are adorned with works by some of Melbourne’s leading artists – Smug, Kitt Bennett, and Michael Peck – which can be viewed during the tour.
