The space has huge ceilings, it's bright and makes a great blank canvas for whatever project you have in mind. In our case, we hung an exhibition and it was very good for that. When there was a problem with the lighting Boris was extremely responsive. For warmer summer months bear in mind that there is no A/C (fan provided however), but given the great value of this venue we were willing to work with it.
