300 Pax Cocktail Venue
200 Pax Sit Down (With Dance Floor)
Funerals are amongst some of the most poignant events we host here at Canvas House. We consider every funeral or wake we participate in to be an absolute honour. And creating the perfect setting for your funeral or wake that pays homage to the loved one who’s being remembered is not a mantle that we take on lightly.
Funerals and wakes are in short, a celebration of someone’s unique and illustrious life. So it goes without saying that you’d want your funeral or wake venue to be a space that paints a heartfelt picture of that life. And where better to paint a picture than on our blank canvas here at Canvas House?
Located in the heart of South Melbourne and just a stone’s throw from the Melbourne CBD, Canvas House is the perfect funeral and wake venue for a number of notable reasons. Not only is our lovingly curated event space a picturesque setting for contemporary funerals and wakes that still seek an air of classicalism, but our central location helps ensure that all your loving mourners can arrive with ease, wherever they may be based in Melbourne.

Our South Melbourne warehouse has been designed by our Canvas House team to be a clean and contemporary funeral and wake venue. Our whitewashed exposed original brick walls and high contrast black steel support beams provide a highly customisable space that’s filled to the brim with potential. You can hang framed photographs and other keepsakes of your lost loved one all around our funeral and wake venue, and even use Canvas House’s high performance AV system to run memorial videos and slideshows for your mourners to take in. We even have handheld and headset microphones on hand to cater for memorial services that may like to host a performance or sign a hymn in honour of the departed.
And if you’d prefer to add a spiritual element to your funeral or wake, then just a quick walkthrough of our South Melbourne funeral and wake venue will reveal just how cathedral-like our space can become. Our converted warehouse is fitted with a breathtaking 6 metre high cathedral-style vaulted ceiling, so you can feel like you’re at church without even needing an altar or pews.
We’ve taken efforts to ensure that our funeral and wake venue here at Canvas House is fully non-denominational and accepting of all faiths, allowing for memorial services that incorporate multiple or even no religious ceremonies. And if there are any additional decor items or furnishings that you may need to host your funeral or wake, you can easily bring these items through our rear loading door which has a clearance of 2.6 metres.
You can find our full space specifications right here, or feel free to call our team at Canvas House to schedule a private tour of our funeral and wake venue in the lead-up to your memorial service. We’re always happy to work with you to create the perfect setting for your funeral or wake event.

From our modern interiors and AV equipment to our timeless architecture and romantic atmosphere, Canvas House has been praised as one of South Melbourne’s premier event spaces for many years now.
