About this space

With 2,600 square feet of unobstructed space,
The Laboratory studio is a versatile venue, that can be transformed to suit your personality.
It maintains its original character with stunning stone floors, stripped wooden beams, exposed brick walls and high ceilings. It can accommodate intimate events of up to 50 guests.
We can take care of as much or as little as you would like. You can choose from one of our own preferred suppliers or bring in your own team, giving you the freedom to work with your chosen caterer, florist or furniture supplier.
We treat every brief and event package as bespoke. Send us an email with a description of your requirements and someone from our team will be in touch to discuss specifics and schedule a site visit.

The Laboratory is a 2000 sq ft open plan studio set in a beautifully restored old tram depot in Clapton, East London, with an original stone floor, stripped wooden beams, granite feature walls and 18ft high ceilings.

The space has beautiful daylight throughout the day, with blackout also available. We have two exquisite bathrooms, a shower room, large kitchen area with range oven, a client seating area and a makeup station.

A multi-purpose studio, that can be transformed to suit your production, it is ideal for creatives looking for a setting that will give them the freedom and the creativity to customise, personalise and really make the space their own.

The studio is located on the ground floor and offers free on-street parking in the local area. We are a two-minute walk from Clapton overground station. We can also take care of any catering requirements that you may have.

The Laboratory is used for all kinds of functions from corporate events to weddings and fashion shows, through to small and large-scale editorial shoots and video productions.

We offer optional vintage furniture hire and catering from our favourite suppliers who cater for our weddings, events and photoshoots, and understand the space.

We are a friendly team so get in touch to discuss your requirements.
