Open Plan, East London Loft

Theydon Road E5

Your Host



I'm a content strategist, editor and business owner. My husband Jonathan is a photographer. Having hosted over 20 photoshoots, video shoots and workshops - we're well-versed on the needs of different types of bookings. Get in touch!


Our open-plan, industrial loft is on the second floor of a 1930s, East End former aircraft factory, designed by Sir Owen Williams.

It's flooded with natural light and close to transport links.

We welcome all kinds of creative projects in our space, and have hosted one-on-one coaching sessions, cooking demos and shoots for big brands like SONY, Bose and the BBC.

Through Vrumi, we welcome small, independent crews.

- Huge windows and mezzanine levels
- easy access for camera gear, and free parking
- See more photos on Instagram: @e5Studios

PLEASE NOTE: Higher Rates Apply for video and photo shoots than for meetings.
All you have to do is let me know the purpose of your shoot, and the number of cast and crew, and I'll respond with a fee.

When we hosted a ten-day innovation workshop for the UK's leading Cancer charity, the team commented on the ideas and connection they were able to generate from being in a homey, less sterile environment than an office. It was lovely feedback! You'll get:

- Snacks, hot drinks and use of the open-plan kitchen with juicer, oven and microwave.
- Pre-consultation and visit if you need anything prepared a certain way.
- If booking for more than one day, you can leave items in a locked closet here during the evenings, free of charge.

PLUS: Free parking, two bathrooms, colour printer, a separate office area and supplies including a whiteboard. We hire a cleaner before each booking.

Oh my word! I cannot describe how unbelievably thankful we were to Emma and Jonathan. The location was stunning, the pictures show just a fraction of the beauty of the space. If that wasn’t enough for our crew, she also provided us with snacks, fruit, teas and coffee. She communicated with us from start to finish and was always willing accommodate us in any way she could. We were so lucky to find this brilliant location for our shoot. I would book soon to avoid disappointment. Our weekend couldn’t have gone better.

Emma is a fantastic host. She took great care in making the flat look spotless and leaving gorgeous snacks for me and my clients before she left.
It's a very special space indeed and I would love to come back again.

This was the ideal location for our photoshoot. Emma & Jonathan were most gracious hosts and made the whole booking process a breeze and even a pre-shoot recce which really helped.

Emma was so helpful in the lead-up to and during our booking. It was a great venue in East London and convenient for crew and talent to get to. There were other areas that we could use for those overseeing but not directly involved with the shoot. Emma went out of her way to ensure that we had all the right information to make sure that our shoot went well.

This venue is beautiful, light & airy space. Emma made us feel very welcome & left us with plenty of very tasty refreshments. It's s a 5-10 minute walk from Clapton station so very accessible if like me you are travelin from outside of London. If you need a relaxed space for team a small team meeting or photo shoot, this is perfect.
