The Forge Building

The Forge is a Grade II listed commercial building with immense historical significance.
It was built in 1860 for CJ Mare & Company (engineers and shipbuilders).
It is one of the last buildings from the golden age of shipbuilding on the Isle of Dogs.
Amongst this incredible history, a free-standing, two-storey birch plywood construction proudly stands within the interior of this vast building housing versatile studio space.
At the forefront of the building, bathed in natural light, is the Gallery Space.
It's sympathetic renovation ensured that many original features remained, these include the huge feature windows, exposed brickwork, eight former furnace chimney breasts, old gantries, ironwork and industrial fittings and even two overhead cranes.
