COMING SOON!

Opening in September 2020, Cell's new Forest Park Studios will be based in the vibrant and growing creative hub of Argall Avenue, Leyton E10, nestled alongside the woodland & nature reserves of the Lea Valley.

We’re taking a former carpentry factory, stripping it back to a shell and creating more than 90 purpose-built artist studios, with sizes to suit a wide variety of visual arts practices. Studios will range from 140ft2 starter spaces to 500ft2 workshop spaces with double-height ceilings. 40% of studios will cost £250 per month or less.

All studios will have brand new double-glazed windows and excellent natural light, with many looking out over expansive green space and woodland. Rental costs include business rates, a dedicated heating system for each studio, commercial-grade super-high-speed internet provision from ISP Optimity and all service charges.

 

Forest Park is Cell’s latest permanent site and we’re investing in building high-quality well-designed studios that will support London’s artistic community for the long-term. Studio rents will remain affordable, stable and predictable in perpetuity, and with solid blockwork walls, large windows, well-thought-out access and good security, these will be studios that you can really make your own.
