Elysium
Lateen Lane, Byron Bay NSW
2014

ELYSIUM brought together a team of creative professionals driven by a desire to activate under-utilised urban spaces and transform them into places of wonder and beauty. The project’s aim was to uplift and enliven a key CBD site through a curated application of colour, pattern, light, form, texture and planting – integrated with existing structures and in collaboration with tenants and building owners.

A transformation project of this scale and calibre is a first for Byron Bay. ELYSIUM intentionally moved away from traditional imagery associated with Byron Bay and instead aimed to provide locals and visitors with something entirely different – an immersive contemporary art experience.
