Studios: creative workspaces for rent in London

An inspirational space, an enthusiastic community, an easy commute. Need a new home for your creative business? Perhaps you’re a designer-maker: a jeweller, a ceramicist, a digital designer? A web agency, or even an architect looking for the right environment?


Thrive in our community of creative workspaces

You’ll fall in love with The Forge when you visit us. It’s your opportunity to work amongst like-minded people, and flourish. Those already renting our creative workspaces do so for many reasons. Yet, they all enjoy the same benefits – as could you.

What a location!

One-of-a-kind, The Forge is an impressive, Grade II listed building, with history taking it back to the golden age of shipbuilding. Commended for a New London Award, the recent, high quality renovation is astounding.

Sympathetically incorporating the preservation of original, industrial features, a bold, two-storey birch plywood structure houses our creative workspaces for rent. Craft Central has signed a 20-year lease for The Forge. We’re here to stay.

It’s an easy commute. You’ll find us on the Isle of Dogs, east London: just five stops from Canary Wharf; seven minutes’ walk from Island Gardens station (DLR).

We’ve thought of everything for you

Having run London creative workspaces for over 40 years, we know exactly what you need. Flexible in size, our studios can range from 84 to 345 square feet.

With ample natural light (particularly on the mezzanine floor), each studio has a window into the communal area. 

Set in a gated residential community, there’s 24/7 security at The Forge and you can enjoy the benefit of bookable free parking, should you have visitors or a delivery to receive.

And there’s more…

* Integrated heating and ventilation
* High speed WiFi
* Ample power sockets
* Wash-up areas on both floors
* Disabled access
* Extraction on request
* Kitchen facilities and café-style seating

All over two floors. Learn more about our ground floor studios and our mezzanine floor studios.

Events: a built-in revenue opportunity

The Forge hosts a busy events calendar and as a member of our creative workspace team, you’re free to get involved.

Mingle with the local community and visitors from London as a whole.

Be part of an event and develop the profile of your creative business. We’re here to help you succeed.

All-inclusive, low-hassle rent

Our rents are different. We want you to focus on your business; not the administration behind it. So, we provide full-service rents that include everything - leaving the headache of utility bills to us.

Take a studio at The Forge and your commitment is just one month for shared space and three months for an individual studio. Most tenants stay much longer, but it’s nice to know you don’t have to.

Depending on the size of the studio you wish to rent, our all-inclusive prices start from just £450 (including VAT) per month for an exclusive rental.
