Some of the spaces look a bit basic?
At first glance, yes, we rent out all of our spaces as is. They best suit creatives, those first venturing into the world of freelance and those starting up or growing a business that want an affordable space with no long contracts (and no risk).
We are flexible and encourage you to make a space your own by adjusting it to suit your needs. Just make sure you run alterations by us first.
With a bit of imagination many of our tenants have radically transformed their studios and offices, turning bare, empty units into gyms, catwalks, photography studios, rehearsal rooms, recording studios, woodworking workshops and everything in between.
