Rent a Studio

All of our studio spaces at Islington Mill are currently let & we are full.

However, all studio rental enquiries are added to an active waiting list that will be contacted whenever space becomes available.

If you’re interested in a space, have a question, or would like to be added to our tenant waiting list, please direct all studio enquiries to stina@islingtonmill.com.

In your email, please tell us a bit about yourself, your practice, & how you intend to be using the space (visual art, music, etc.)

Studio Details
Our studios maintain the character of the old mill: walls are whitewashed brick; floors are quarry tiled and ceilings are vaulted with iron columns. Each space provides natural light with at least one window measuring around 150cm x 180cm.

Individual studios are completely self contained: lockable, heatable and equipped with a one-hour fire door with a five lever mortice lock. Free Wi-Fi can be accessed from all studios.

Your rent includes:

  • electricity
  • water
  • waste removal
  • wi-fi
  • buildings insurance

Rent is payable monthly on the first day of each month.

What size are the spaces?
Because of the nature of the building, most of our spaces don’t conform to a standard sizes, but they roughly split into three main categories:

  • small = 3m x 3m
  • medium = 3m x 6m
  • large = 6m x 6m

Prices start from £135pcm.

What are the contract terms?
The contract is a month-by-month rolling license agreement, offering you maximum flexibility. There is no fixed or minimum term and your contract runs indefinitely. Our only condition is that you give a least one month’s notice of your intended leaving date – on or before the 1st of the month that you want to leave in.

To take a space at Islington Mill, you’ll need to pay your first month’s rent in advance, together with one month’s deposit, which is held until you leave. We may ask for proof of identification and address.
