Residents testimonials

House of Dré

House of Dré

"After the isolation of the pandemic, the studio has been immensely beneficial both socially and for our work. We have started to collaborate with various artists within the studio and hope to continue this on every project we do moving forward. Being in and around other creatives is really inspirational."

The Dream Of

The Dream Of

"Having a studio has allowed me so much freedom in how I work! There is no way that I would be where I am now if I was working in another space. It is also such a wonderful area and I love bringing people here. As a practitioner it was incredibly hard to find spaces to work in that aligned with my aesthetic. I knew that I wanted a space which I could have to begin this journey with that was a part of me, and that felt essential. My first studio was very small compared to what I have now, but was absolutely the perfect beginning. I’m so excited to see what this next chapter to my practice brings, the activations and offerings which have already expanded because of the size of the space!

I can’t wait to reopen and I am so grateful for HDS for allowing me to grow my practice within the space. I hope I never leave!"

"I first came to Hackney Downs Studios for a fabric presentation at sustainable fabric supplier ESCE-Tex. There was a fun event going on in the lobby and the studio's atmosphere caught my eye. I viewed quite a few studio spaces in Hackney, and I chose HDS for its artistic energy and communal environment. It feels like a hidden gem in Hackney, and its creative, welcoming, and relaxed energy is a natural extension of the Blue Nude brand."

"We have been at Hackney Downs for 6-7 years, and it is the tranquil residential atmosphere and strong sense of community that keeps us rooted here. The area offers a perfect blend of productivity and a relaxed environment, allowing for a high quality of life and ample outdoor space. Being part of this creative hub has led to numerous fruitful working relationships. From exciting collaborations with talented artists like Alec Doherty to partnerships like our ongoing projects with Eat Work Art, our time here has been enriched by these connections."
