Amazing natural light, perfect location for photographers and videographers. At over 1700 square feet, this is one of the largest lofts available in the bustling art-world mecca that is Williamsburg/East Williamsburg/Bushwick. Extra charges may apply as needed for: backdrop paper, lighting rentals, projector, sound system, use of chairs, tables, kitchen, etc. We only allow private events in the space. No public or promoted events.
No smoking, no roof access. Elevator only avail 10am-3pm Mon-Thurs and 10am-12pm Fri. Elevator is not guaranteed.
This place may work for small shoots but if you have to load any equipment into the space make sure you let the host know ahead of time and work it out. The place was listed as having a freight elevator but when we arrived it may as well not have been there. There was no one available to operate it, even if there was we were told we'd have to tip the operator (on top of the rental fee), and when I inquired about picking up equipment the following day when the operator was available I wasn't able to get any kind of assurance he'd be there at all. Its a shame because the space was pretty good but lugging tons of equipment up four flights of stairs is not how I like to start a shoot. Hopefully some clarifying language about the elevator has been added to the listing since my experience.
PRO: this place is magical, it brings visions into reality. to top it off, kurt (the host) can be half way around the world and still find the time to communicate and accommodate CON: no elevator,
The space was gorgeous!! Lots of natural light that complemented the art work well. Kurt was also very responsive and flexible to my exhibition needs. Would definitely recommend for art exhibitions!
We booked this space for a video shoot. It was a complicated set up on our end, lots of gear and crew. Kurt was super responsive to all our needs - both leading up to and during the shoot. He was present throughout the day, incredibly accommodating, and had a solution for all our challenges. He even managed to arrange special access to the freight elevator which was a tremendous bonus. The space was beautiful, filled with light, spacious and full of character. I'd certainly book again, and recommend to my contacts.
