Welcome to Circa

Bowens is known for otheir dependable products and services, and our eye for the future of better building. Circa takes this to the next level, offering our customers a curated collection of innovative architectural hardware, fittings, and fixtures to elevate any build project.

Located in Port Melbourne and adjacent to our Bowens Trade Store, Circa, formerly Showroom by Bowens, is the brainchild of John Bowen. Every touchpoint aligns with our commitment to quality, value, and design excellence. The architecturally designed space and modular product displays have been curated to seamlessly evolve and pivot to accommodate new and changing product ranges, ensuring that our customers have first access to the latest and best product design.

A Showcase of Good Design

Created by award winning designers Latitude Group and Studio Massive, Circa is a game changer.

“Circa offers a new interpretation of a commercial specification space, a journey of equal parts information and inspiration for architects, designers, specifiers, builders and their clients” explains Daniel Dalla Riva, Environments Director at Latitude Group.

“The showroom was designed with a minimalist design aesthetic, utilitarian colour palette, and restrained materiality to create a calming and highly considered space that conceals and reveals a curated selection of architectural hardware, fittings and fixtures”.

“A restrained colour palette and a simple layout allow for organic navigation through the space, and a personalised experience that is more physical, more tactile, more engaging, and more conversational. Circa is a great resource for all specifiers… and they do a great coffee!”
