Bow Arts have created 40 new build affordable studio spaces at Royal Albert Wharf in an exciting new development with Notting Hill Housing. We have fitted out the internal spaces working with Delvendahl Martin Architects, who designed our Bow Arts offices and Icehouse Court Studios in Barking.
The studios are set within a large and evolving new housing and commercial development within the historic Royal Albert Docks, the largest enclosed docks in the world, surrounding nearly 250 acres of water. The whole area is set to gain over 9,000 new homes by 2027. All the studios are set close to the water, in what really is a unique environment in London.
As well as the studios designed for artists designers and makers, Bow Arts are managing the entire commercial estate on behalf of Notting Hill Housing, and are seeking expressions of interest from a range of interesting commercial tenants for the office, retail, cafe and restaurant spaces within the site.
To initiate cultural activity on-site we created RAW Labs a place for ideas, action and reaction. RAW Labs will host a changing programme of art, events and conversation and coffee, book exchange, film club, yoga and more. RAW Labs is currently open Thursday – Sunday serving great coffee and sharing great ideas. Keep an eye on this website for What’s On updates of activity on-site.
