The team at Rockwell House are taking a break.
Following a tumultuous 2015 the founders of Rockwell House and the small team behind it are taking a break from running space. As curators and artists who set out with an original plan to create a self-sustaining space we have found the market in London growing increasingly more competitive and not conducive to running a happy and sustainable setup. As wave after of wave of creatives leave London and head for pastures new we’ve decided to take a break from playing the landlord/tenant game.
This is by no means the end, we will continue as a pop-up entity focusing on creative projects + events whilst rediscovering our passion for London.
We apologise if you’ve found us via a separate site and were hoping to book our beautiful rooftop or warehouse, both of which are no more. You can still find us on firstname.lastname@example.org & check out our founders EndoftheLine
In 2010 we took a previously squatted 8,000 square foot 1960’s factory through a major cosmetic facelift, including a 10 week rewiring and a space planning programme to drag it kicking and screaming firmly into the present. It was a hands-on build but with a love, sweat, tears and determination, we made it!
We stripped this once bland and cold space back to the basics, with original concrete floors and ceilings, huge warehouse windows and a simple interior supplemented with artwork by a huge range of artists from the in-house collection of creative agency EndoftheLine.
The huge 2,500 square foot rooftop was turned into a fully licensed venue with handmade up-cycled furniture and an eclectic music policy. It featured fantastic events from Soundcrash, Hush Puppies, Hot Tub Cinema, supported an array of independent projects, Save the Bees, Los Exiles Latin/Cuban night, Fresh Cuts, Mystery Cinema and RW hosted the Mouse Outfit, Lord Finesse, Chali Tuna, Eva Lazarus, Skitz & Mostyles Gathering of the Clans.
We were the antidote to the corporate office space. No scratchy blue carpets, strip lighting or a stuffy reception here. Instead you’d be welcomed by a friendly, flexible and creative atmosphere. All the better to let you get on with what you do: create!
Following notice on our beautiful building in 2015 we moved to a meanwhile space in Whitechapel and this cavernous space was a epic. Over the course of that year the space saw huge life drawing classes, BBC Formula One car visits, Frank Ocean and more but all good things must come to an end. So in early 2016 following the end of our tenancy we decided to take a step back from the property hamster wheel and refocus our creative energies. Onwards and upwards.Check availability
