New York, NY

· superhost
This is the quintessential old warehouse LOFT in Brooklyn. You can see a 3D virtual tour of the space here: https://my.matterport.com/models/8aiWPWsLMuS?section=media&mediasection=showcase There is a big living room area, a bedroom, a backstage room and a bathroom. The space is HUGE and able to host comfortably up to around 30 people for a production (films, photo shoots, commercials, etc). The completely windowed wall is facing South-East which gives the most perfect natural light all day long. The curtains can be open or closed to avoid shades moving. Most productions teams don't even bring lighting, the natural light is more than enough for most projects. On the main area -living room- there are all sort of scenarios that can be used as different backgrounds: A fully equipped renovated open kitchen, a dinning room area, a living room chill area with couches, a hammock and a swing, a projector, a piano and a desk area. Every corner can look like it's a different space. The bedroom is a double sized bedroom, also facing South East with one whole wall as windows. A Queen Size bed, a swing, a mirror and some lovely bedroom decor. With a lot of space to maneuver for good angles and beautiful natural light. We also have a backstage room that can be used as a changing room, makeup, props storage, and even to take pictures in the dark as it's a fully dark room. The dimensions are 18' x 9' and there is a desk, mirrors, a rack, and some useful props. There is also a a cute entrance with a world map and a bench + a good sized bathroom - all black and white. We are on the top of the building, there is a massive elevator that can fit anything in one go, and we are facing a church, so the space is very quiet as there is not street noise. This loft is located in an old building that used to be a fabric factory. Nowadays it is the home of lots of young, creative and interesting people living in one the most artistic scenes of NYC. The apartment has been recently renovated by Lucia Puron (amazing interior designer) with a beautiful design featured in VOGUE and many other magazines. At the top of the building there is a HUGE rooftop with hammocks also available upon request only. You can see Manhattan and Brooklyn, and during the summer this place is the venue for many parties and chillout sessions.

Park Slope Vacant Mansion
New York, NY

· superhost
Please send an inquiry with a description of your project, not a booking request. Film and Video productions (as opposed to still photography) have an additional fee of +$150/hour (i.e. $245/hr (base) + $150/hr (film surcharge)) = $395/hr for film and video projects. This surcharge is due to the need for multiple scouts, heavier footprint, wear & tear, and EQ associated with these shoots. The hourly base rate increases as your head count increases. Please plug in your numbers to calculate your base rate in the Peerspace widget. Someone from our team will be on site with you for the duration of the shoot to orient you in the space and also to verify head count and that all rules are followed. We have a 10 hour minimum, if you book for 6 hours you will be charged for 10 hours. If you book for 6 hours, you must still let us know if your schedule shifts. The safest way to plan to avoid overages like OT is to simply schedule yourself for the full 10 hours even if you do not anticipate needing the full amount of time. Large impact network/commercial filming will require a customised fee schedule. We do not accommodate discounts and cannot be flexible with minimum hours. You cannot book this location for a few hours. Do not message to ask. This lowers our conversion rate and damages our SEO. We will say no. See our other locations linked below!
