Case Study:
Pennington Street Warehouse

The Rum Factory is transformed into 90 affordable artists’ studios run by charity Bow Arts Trust and is the first meanwhile use of the Pennington Street Warehouse, which forms part of the wider London Dock development by St George.

The re-purposing of this building was part of the cultural and placemaking strategy devised by St George to revitalise the London Dock site area during the process of its construction. Eventually destined to be retained and restored for shops, offices and retail use, the open light and airy space lends itself to the long-term temporary use as low-cost studios for artists leased via the Bow Arts Trust.

As a result of St George agreeing to release the space to Bow Arts Trust, this corner of East London has been transformed from a desolate back street to a new centre of creativity. 3d arts such as avante-garde hatmaking live alongside innovative forms from perspex, wood and other materials.
