We are pleased to have completed a 62,000 sq ft urban logistics acquisition located along the Grand Union canal in Park Royal, North West London, on behalf of entrepreneur Thomas Hoegh founder of The Art’s Alliance.
The complex will be known as the Garden Studios and comprises 3 sound stages and a specialised Virtual Production stage, workshops, technical facilities, and fully equipped offices. At the centre of the facility is a world-class Virtual Production stage offering the most up to date and sustainable technology; driving innovation and creativity for productions of all sizes. The Virtual Production Stage is currently available for use. This comprehensive offering is designed to be talent, nature and community friendly.
The facility is committed to creating a sustainable environment, by offsetting its carbon footprint through reducing travel. It will be committed to working with a wide variety of local suppliers from prop designers, editors, sound designers, producers, electricians, carpenters to local catering companies, electric car service and other client services. Garden Studios will encourage recycling; make set design more sustainable through reuse and carefully sourced materials, and through the use of new technologies and the Virtual Production offering, Garden Studios will reduce the need for multi-location shoots; creating a greener option for all productions.
Founder and CEO of Arts Alliance, Thomas Hoegh said: “This will be an owner-operated business; spearheaded by people who have long and deep experience across many aspects of the film industry with success stories like Picturehouse Cinemas, Love Film, Arts Alliance Media, Met Filmschool and Park Circus under our belts.
