The Old School

Our studio is a Grade II listed
school house set over four
floors. It was built in the
1600s on the south bank of the
Thames in Rotherhithe, where
the Mayflower began her
famous voyage. It’s a unique
building and suits us perfectly,
with open fires in winter and
meetings in the garden
in summer.
