About this room

Built circa 1870 and renovated in 1986-87, First Option is a 1790 sq ft film, TV, photography and event space. The split level studio is 1000 sq ft and adjoins a 500 sq ft bespoke kitchen built by one of the last cabinet makers of old Shoreditch. There is a second smaller prep kitchen of 230 sq ft on the ground floor, which is obviously invaluable when filming in the main kitchen.

The balcony is an amazing feature when shooting in the large kitchen, meaning that lighting cranes aren’t so essential. Both the studio and the main kitchen have high pitched roofs and exposed Scotts pine trusses. Original Crittal windows line the Victorian brick walls to provide an abundance of natural light from the north and the south. Blackout blinds cover all windows and both skylights in the studio.
