Shop and Studio space – Red Hook

New York City Space

Space Details


Hi Cube,

Offering a share in our gorgeous studio, shop and gallery space.  Red Hook waterfront.

≈1800 sq ft. lofted space.  1st floor is the shop space and accommodates mixed media, wood and metalworking spaces. 2nd floor is more of a studio. We prefer tenants who are interested in making use of both of the spaces. Many large windows facing the river, with a ton of natural light, every sunset, the boats, the statue. This is a peaceful spot, with no traffic, and almost all the sounds you’ll hear will be waves and birds.

You’ll have a small private space upstairs which can accomodate a desk/bench and shelves or whatever. Then about 1/3 of the total upstairs area is for common use, so if you are the only one there, feel free to just take over. Downstairs is completely shared. We want to maintain a clean and clutter-free (as possible) space.

We are also looking for tenants who are respectful of our neighbors as we are attached to a large glass studio with whom we share a bathroom and kitchen.  We have a good deal of storage which will be divided among tenants. There is free parking in attached lot and we are adjacent to Food Bazaar.  

We all work in various media, so we accommodate everything from paper making and stone carving to casting, metalworking and woodworking.  The main spaces downstairs are set up for wood and metal, but we have a large area dedicated to mixed media as well. 

As we now have the space, we are planning on having a temporary pop-up gallery a few times a year as permitted with Covid regulations to showcase our own work and the work of our peers as a collective effort by some or all tenants.  We are in the process of acquiring more tools as needed.  We want to avoid tool redundancy for space reasons so aren’t looking We hope to find tenants who will be comfortable sharing space, and who will contribute to and be part of our growing cohort.  We are very fortunate to have the space and are excited to continue to grow.
