The industrial location oozes character and natural charm with the skylighted roof providing an abundance of natural light. The warehouse has a chequered history with the largest room originally being part of the adjacent school whilst the rest was split into smaller industrial units. After the area was heavily bombed during the war the whole space was adjoined by the skylighted roof, hence the untouched Victorian street running through the middle. Since then the building has been occupied by a boiler maintenance depot, the metropolitan waterboard and most recently a car mechanics.
