Work completes on Victorian warehouse's transformation into London 'creative hub'

A London real estate organisation has announced that it has completed work on the refurbishment of a former Victorian warehouse.

Vastint UK has restored the warehouse on Sugar House Lane in collaboration with architect Waugh Thistleton,

The site, named The Talent House, is set to become a ‘creative hub’, with East London Dance and UD spared to move into the building this autumn.

The building is part of Dane’s Yard - Sugar House Island’s creative quarter. The fusion of a refurbished Victorian print warehouse and a modern extension will provide recording facilities and dance studios for London’s aspiring talent.

Andrew Cobden, managing director of Vastint UK, commented: “One of the many aspirations for Sugar House Island is to express its industrial heritage in the architecture of the buildings and spaces we create.

“The repurposing of the old warehouse, fused with a new extension has successfully created a place of learning to inspire young creative minds.

“It is fitting that East London Dance and UD will work together in this space as catalysts for creativity and collaboration among its membership and the community.

“An important part of the partnership between Vastint UK and The Talent House is for both East London Dance and UD to offer their expertise, facilities and training to independent artists within the community for more than 2,100 hours of free access per year; they are embedded in helping to nurture that collaboration.”
