Spacious Rustic High Ceiling Space
Our recently renovated 1914 era coffee roasting facility is now a unique, 5000 sq. ft. old school-style NYC photo studio. Designed with the intent of providing high-end amenities inside a gritty unfinished Brooklyn loft, our space makes the perfect location for high-end productions that want a down to Earth feel.
Studio 1, our main space, hosts huge steel casement windows with opaque wire safety glass, rustic plank wood floors, rough brick and distressed plaster walls. Visitors often remark that it reminds them of old SoHo or Williamsburg before gentrification.
Studio 2, with 16ft ceilings and a balcony, is perfect for traditional portraiture, look books or other productions that require a sweep or set build. Solid brick construction makes it good for video interviews and film shoots. Raw, exposed brick walls also make it an excellent choice for edgy editorials.
