Good-sized studio space with natural light from large windows that look into the canal. This studio has a mezzanine area, great for storage, with characteristic triangular windows. This space is a partitioned section with its own door. The entrance is shared with two other artists, both painters. The studio has its own gas heater and built-in shelving.
Built originally as Poplar Technical College, this four story building has been used as artists’ studios since 1994, ACAVA assuming management with a 21 year lease in November 2013. The building comprises 30,000 sq ft over four floors with excellent light.
It has been converted into 60 studios and workshops of various sizes, has a spacious car park and overlooks the Limehouse Cut, a straight, broad canal which links the lower reaches of the Lee Navigation to the river Thames.
