SET Kensington

Housed in the former campus of Richmond university SET Kensington spans 20,000 sq ft and will be home to around 75 artists working across a variety of mediums and disciplines. SET Kensington will open for viewings on the 7th of April 4-7pm.  


Workspaces will be some of the most affordable in London, priced at £1.20 per sq ft (psf) all-inclusive (utilities, rates, wifi, cleaning of communal areas) & £1.10 per sq ft pcm for rooms without natural light. Studios will range from 200 sq ft spaces for £240 per month to 600 sq ft spaces for £720 pcm. We will also provide small units of 100 sq ft for £150 pcm.

The spaces can host a wide variety of practices. Studios are not suitable for loud music rehearsals. 

Studio viewings will take place every second Thursday from the 7th of April between 4pm and 7pm.

You can book a viewing here.


SET Kensington will house an exhibition programme in a 1000sq ft project space – including our Members’ Programme which features works by SET studio artists from the Kensington centre and our other SET centres. 


SET Kensington has a 2000 sq ft photography darkroom in the basement with some of the old infrastructure still in place. We are looking to make this into a community workshop space, either as a darkroom or as a print making studio (something that makes great use of what’s there). We are looking for an individual or group to collaborate with on this project and get it back in use!

We will publish more photos and info in the coming days.
