  2. Work over art: media-style offices above gallery in RIBA winning building

    7 December 2018
    Almost dead centre in the Shoreditch Triangle, this trio of modern offices flaunts a sense of fun and individuality with quirky offset picture windows in one of the most striking contemporary buildings in the neighbourhood.
    Available are three units, two on the third floor and one of the fourth, ranging from 740 to 926ft2. With a quoting rent of £47.50 per ft2 and flexible lease terms, they offer cost-conscious businesses an economical price-point to secure a workspace in a prime City Fringe position.

    Exposed concrete soffits with surface mounted light boxes are accompanied by concealed air-conditioning, raised floors, kitchenettes and in-situ meeting rooms, while the building offers its occupiers a commissionaire, shower facilities, cycle storage and events/conference spaces available for rent.

    Designed by David Adjaye, one of Britain’s leading contemporary architects, Rivington Place opened in October 2007 and won a RIBA award in 2008. It was the first new-build public gallery in London since the opening of the Hayward Gallery way back in 1968. 

    The building is the home of two of London’s most enquiring and enlightening cultural organisations:  Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts), and Autograph ( the Association of Black Photographers). 

    Iniva explores the diversity of society through exhibitions, debates, learning and digital initiatives, while Autograph uses photography to explore questions of cultural identity, race, representation, human rights and social justice. In short, there is always something interesting and thought-provoking to enjoy.

    The combination of gallery and education spaces, meeting rooms, café and the Stuart Hall Library make Rivington Place a unique and enriching place to work: a space for viewing, researching and learning about contemporary art. 

    The area, of course, needs no introduction. The epicentre of creative cool in London, Shoreditch has spawned many an imitation but still reigns supreme. Home to some of the most inspiring creative businesses in London in fields form architecture and interior deign to media, fashion and right through to forward thinking tech and financial sectors, the area is live from dawn ‘til dusk with a hug offering of places to eat and drink, as well as plenty of places to stay the night when going home is no longer an option.

    Close to Shoreditch High Street (Overground) and Old Street (Northern Line and National Rail) stations, Rivington Place is also within walking distance of London Liverpool Street where its Underground, National Rail and Stansted Express lines are soon to be supplemented with the arrival of the Elizabeth Line when phase one of Crossrail completes.
