I don't know exactly how tight your space constraints are, but a sack of grain only takes up a little more than a cubic foot in the right container. A lot of people here in the States use a pet food container that's about a foot square and maybe 15" tall. I'd assume that there's something similar available in NZ.
And the best part about all-grain is that you can make just about any style using standard 2-row as 75% or better of your grain bill. So you just need the one big sack and you can buy your specialty malts a bit at a time as you need them. The savings aren't quite as good since the price of grain in general has been climbing, but I'm still paying about 30% less per pound for a sack of grain than if I were to buy it in smaller lots.
All that said, I can see how it can still be a significant amount of room if you happen to live in a small apartment. If that were my situation, I'd definitely prioritize storing beer over grain.
