At Sun Pier House we’ve utilised empty offices at this former bank and modified them into artist studios

There are 20 studio spaces split across three floors, generating a unique hive of creativity

Our first artist moved in with us at the very beginning of our project here at Sun Pier House in 2013. Since then we’ve been home to numerous different artists, supporting them in the early stages of their practice. There’s a vibrant art community in Medway which we love being a part of.

Each studio varies in size and comes with large windows with a fantastic view of the River Medway – perfect inspiration! Free parking is available in the evenings and weekends for resident artists and for loading/ unloading during office hours.

Want to see the inside workings of the artist’s studios? Once a year our residents open their doors to welcome in the public, exhibit their work and talk about their practice. The Sun Pier Artists take part in The Medway Open Studios & Arts Festival which is an annual event taking place in July each year and free for the public.


From September 2019, we have available units in The Old Gallery, 2nd floor. This is a large shared room divided into 6 units, already home to a variety of artists from a contemporary jeweller to sound artists.
