Brickworks, 15 Federation St, Box Hill. This place ticked all the right boxes with me. Archaic industrial machinery, old red brick walls, really high ceilings, old timber flooring and staircases, rusted corrugated iron sheeting and dirt floors. This place reminded me of the old Russian movie by Tarkovsky called "Stalker". Unfortunately my camera battery ran out while I was there and I didn't get any pics of the kiln next to it, but that was an interesting space as well. On the down side I did bump into a young guy who said he was living in the very top bit (which I would have liked to see) but if you stay out of his space he seems pretty cool. Thanks Dre for the heads up on this one.
