Studio Application

Studio 4K
available spring 2019

Studio 4K Originally built as storage space, this unit has since been turned into a small office which may be of interest to those requiring little space for their practice. There is an inbuilt desk and some storage shelves. The space has a window looking onto the pitched roof of the Cluny and its wall onto the corridor is primarily made of glass. The proximity to wood workshops should be taken into consideration as the dust and noise produced by these working spaces may be problematic for some. 

Quarterly rent of £58.82
There is no premium attached to this space, however 36 Lime Street asks for a deposit of £500.

Interviews Will be held on Monday 4th March. Applicants are interviewed by existing members to select the most appropriate candidate.


Electricity is charged on a usage basis with the cost of the communal areas shared between studios. Members are responsible for arranging and paying their rates and other utilities, supplying and maintaining appropriate fire safety equipment for their practice, biannual PAT testing their electrical equipment and 5 yearly professional inspection of their studio’s electrical supply.

Studio Management 

36 Lime Street Ltd’s guiding principle is to provide secure, affordable studio spaces for rent by creative artists and in doing so to contribute towards the regeneration of the building and the area. The ethos of 36 Lime Street is that Members run the organisation cooperatively, working collectively as well as taking on individual responsibilities. 36 Lime Street Ltd holds a head lease for the building that requires it to fully maintain and repair the premises. Rent from studios includes an amount for repairing and maintaining the fabric of the building and communal areas, plus part-time administrative support.

Members are expected and obliged to contribute to the running of the building by undertaking tasks such as testing fire alarms, overseeing building works, putting out bins, redecorating corridors or organising exhibitions, studio tours, open studios and other events. It is essential that all Members sign up to be an active member of at least one committee or other member-led sub-group and are prepared to become an elected member of the board of Directors at some point. An average of 4 General Committee meetings and an Annual General Meeting are held each year and the Board of Directors meets once a month.

In effect, Members ‘pay’ for rent below market average by putting time and effort into running the building.
