We rented this space for a videoshoot for our dance team, and the space was gorgeous with a nice wood floor perfect for dancing. The space also has WiFi, which is nice. Mick was a great host and guided us on how to use the space and was very helpful.
Mick was a great and very responsible host. The space is beautifully lit and perfect for formal and informal gatherings of any kind! Could comfortably fit around 30-50 people.
The space exceeded all of my dreams. The natural light is amazing, the brick walls the perfect backdrop, and the studio is kept in perfect condition. Clean and spacious, and decked out with anything I could ever imagine needing for a photo- or video shoot, or a meeting or workshop. I would always be proud to bring clients and business associates here no matter the occasion. Mick as a host is as amazing as they come. He was accomodating and kind, responsive and helpful, and just an awesome person to meet and talk to.
We loved this space, and look forward to renting it again many more times. It was perfect for our 4-day workshop, 20 people. Thank you Mick, the space is beautiful, and you are gracious and kind.
Mick is simply the best! He makes the whole process easy as can be and goes the extra mile to make sure we have everything needed for a good shoot. Thanks again Mick!
