Metworks is a large, empty, former university building in the Commercial Road, London E1.

It makes the perfect "blank canvas" set for filming & photography, comprising seven floors that include large open spaces (including a former hospital set), lecture theatres, office spaces, a warehouse studio, a hospital ward set and two large rooftops with views of central London. Metworks is outside the congestion zone.

The building is presented in our library as below:
