SPREAD YOUR WINGS

SPACE TO CALL YOUR OWN

Never share with anyone! AstroLab is a multi-studio, single production facility. While we offer two separate Studios and plenty of extra support space outside of the studios, our facility can only be reserved by one production at a time. This means you and your team will always be the ONLY production in the space while you’re with us!

Every production starts with a booking of Studio 1 (the larger of the two) and its support rooms (HMU, green room, kitchen & lounge, change room). If you require more space you can add rooms as needed to suit your production!

No matter which rooms you book, this is YOUR home exclusively while you’re with us. Take your shoes off and get comfy!
