Lee Gate Shop Units

Submitted by Studios on Tue, 09/08/2016 - 11:39

Bow Arts has just taken on several studios in the Lee Gate shopping centre in Lewisham. Alongside the ex-office style studios in the tower, there are initially 3 shop units available on the first floor mezzanine.


We are looking to fill these spaces with practices that will not become just insular studio spaces – for instance retaining the use of the shop windows, or an open element to the space, or just through the activity taking place. The brief is very open and we would be glad to discuss new possibilities. The space could be used as a project space or gallery, or to host workshops. It could be studio space for a collective or co-working space for designers.


We have one other site similar to this, on the Aberfeldy Estate in Poplar where the two groups, The People Speak and Evening Class have now settled. With two very different practices but both making fantastic use of the space, it is really an exciting opportunity for us to take on more similar spaces and develop new uses for the old shop spaces.

The shops will have access to shared bathroom and kitchen facilities between them, and are all located next door to each other. They are above a large free carpark also.


Please find below a breakdown of the sizing of each of the spaces and their respective cost:
