The Space Studio is an artist workspace flexible enough to host a variety of creative uses:

  • Film productions and set builds
  • Film screenings, auditions, or rehearsals
  • Music video and photography shoots 
  • Theatrical performances or rehearsals 
  • Music performances or practice sessions 
  • Dance studio 
  • Art gallery or exhibition space 
  • Classes and workshops


Be advised the studio is a basement space in a building with little to no control over noise coming from upstairs tenants. While this is typically not a problem during normal business hours, the building sees an increase in noise and activity on nights and weekends. This mainly only affects audio-intensive work.


The Space Studio is located at 438 Somerville Ave, Somerville, MA 02143

Entrance is located in the alley between Market Basket and Little India Market, directly across from the Winebow Boston loading docks — look for the gray door stencilled with The Space Studio and the Auspicious Phoenix logo.

Parking available alongside the building or in front of the loading dock. Do not park in the Market Basket parking lot or your vehicle will be towed.
