In 2007, SouthStudios was founded on the top floor of 27 New South Row. The idea behind the formation of SouthStudios was to create an interesting and functional work environment for freelance creatives and to offer a large studio rental facility to photographers, filmmakers, and designers working in Dublin.
Built in the middle of the 19th century, 27 New Row South was originally home to the City of Dublin Brewing Company.
The last century saw its development as a tannery as part of Dublin’s Jewish community which was extensive in Dublin 8 in the 1950s. By 1975, the premises were being used by P.A. Stapleton & Son as a wholesale distribution centre.
The history and original features, such as Victorian beams and period windows, give the SouthStudios building immense character, making it into an inspiring energetic space to work and create in.
