Thinking of visiting?

All of the shops and galleries have different public opening hours, so you should check the opening hours of each space. But if you are thinking of visiting all of the shops and galleries in the one trip, the best times to catch most of them open are Wednesdays – Saturdays between 11 – 3pm. Many of these projects are closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Projects in commercial offices are running 9-5 weekday businesses, and are open to visits from clients by appointment.
