B Estate studios

This project created seven purpose built eco-friendly artists’ studios on the Bristol Estate in Brighton.  Having converted disused drying spaces underneath some of the tower blocks, a thriving community of artists has taken up residence, continuig their own practices and providing participatory experiences for residents of the Estate.

The Council has leased the studios to the Bristol Estate Community Association at a rent of 1 peppercorn a year, providing the Community Association with an income.

Opened by the Mayor of Brighton & Hove, and myself, in the role of Creative Industries Manager, Brighton & Hove City Council, on 8.10.08

  1. Hi Dany

    I have been working with a friend in studio13b for a few months and love working there, I see studio 13a is currently unoccupied and would love the opportunity to take it on. I am very happy to get involved in community projects as and when required.

    I look forward to hearing back from you soon

    Kind regards


    • Hi Rob, sorry for the delay in responding to this. I don’t have any involvement in the Bristol Estate Studios any more. Best thing to do is contact the Residents Association for information on how to apply for one. Best, Dany
