Built in the1970s, fivefourstudios is a former warehouse transformed into a state-of-the-art studio and events venue. Renovated and reopened by acclaimed fashion and beauty photographer David Oldham, the property features three fully serviced photographic studios, including a drive-in studio, a daylight studio, an elegant club bar and a private lounge. Restoring much of the original industrial features and adding a touch of decadence, the result is an elegant mix of styles.
The first floor is the true heart of the building; the luxuriously appointed lounge bar features plush furnishings and subdued lighting, providing a sumptuous spot for guests to enjoy a drink. The private courtyard, situated at the rear of the building, features tree-lined black brick walls and can be accessed via double barn-doors, making it the perfect spot for indoor and outdoor entertainment.
Celebrate in style
Whether you envisage an informal gathering or a more flamboyant affair, fivefourstudios has the flexibility to be tailored to your individual requirements and style. There are three main rooms and a bar available for exclusive hire for up to 240 guests.
Studio One, fivefourstudios’s largest studio, features a full-height infinity cove, a mezzanine area and a hair and make-up suite with a shower. The studio has direct access to the private car park through wide double doors, and daylight can be controlled with electric blackout blinds on the skylights.
Alternatively, Studio Two has white brick walls, a polished concrete floor and diffused daylight from a glass brick wall. The studio also features an open plan hair and make-up area, a private changing area and separate dining space. Studio One and Two can be linked by double doors, forming a combined space for large celebrations.
The Loft is flooded with natural daylight from east and west facing skylights running the length of the ceiling, which are equipped with individually-controlled blackout blinds. There’s also a private hair and make-up area, a bathroom and dining and lounge facilities.
The staff work with a range of chefs to create bespoke menus and ensure you receive the perfect culinary experience, be it canapés and fine dining or street food vendors in the courtyard. External caterers are welcome, and for more intimate dining, the open-plan commercial kitchen, situated in the bar with seating for up to 28 diners, is available.
