I’ve been in my new studio nearly 4 months now so I thought it was about time it made a debut on the journal. I’ve always dreamed of having my own studio space, a place to call my own – so I’m thrilled to announce my new home in Containerville. We are actually nestled between Bethnal Green and Broadway Market, just off the canal so the perfect commute from my home in Leyton via the Olympic and Victoria Park.
The studio is old shipping container (I do wonder where it’s travelled to over the years) and we’re on the new site (that’s currently still a building site) but it’s a lovely little community of small business owners who we’re gradually getting to know. Rumour has it they’ll be opening a Containerville food court soon and Ozone Coffee Roasters have already begun renovating the building opposite us. When searching for the perfect space (I must’ve seen maybe 30 studios, eek) our prerequisite was that there must be space for large desks, a sofa-chill-out-area, a kitchenette and an abundance of plants – all our which we’ve managed, hurrah.
There’s still some things to do but I love that it’s been growing organically as I really do believe you need to live in a space first to understand it’s flow, the light and how you use the space. We are super happy here… here’s some snaps!
