Hackney Downs Studios is a centre for creativity and collaboration in East London. Established in 2011, the space has been transformed from a redundant printworks to an enterprising arts and business hub. There are versatile venues/locations and over 90 serviced studios and workspaces for creative businesses. There’s also a series of rooftops, railway arches, a secret garden, The Village Green shops, a monthly market and our café The Russet.
Over 100 creative businesses reside in our building, from record labels to florists, jewellery designers to bookbinders, filmmakers to architects, vintage bicycles and a bespoke brewery. We welcome everyone from small and start-up companies to established creative leaders. Check out our Residents section of the website to see who’s on board.
Acting as a platform, we welcome people from all disciplines, encouraging our community to build networks within East London and beyond. We wish to enrich the Hackney Downs area with positive creative projects and are dedicated to providing opportunities for the local community to engage with the space, the people, and the events.
Hackney Downs Studios is managed by Creative Network Partners; we also run Netil House, Netil 360, Netil 000, The Russet & Netil Market.
