Philadelphia, PA

My name is Genevieve Geer and I am opening a hybrid space that is a glass studio/ retail / gallery, and most importantly, houses four small 10x10 studios, that we are renting for $285. This covers rent, electric, ac and internet. Each studio is private, and secure. We created these spaces to fill a gap in the Philadelphia studio market. Most studios that are safe and warm or cool start at $600 plus utilities. We think these high rents are a trend in Philadelphia that is completely unsupportive to artists, and is driven by developers looking solely to make a buck. Happy to have artists in the neighborhood, but do nothing to sustain them. We think these small inexpensive spaces are a necessity for a healthy creative city, and we want to set an example! We are looking for a nice combination of artists for our first rentals- hopefully for December 1st. 

Utility Works Creative Community: We are just getting started so there are several studio spaces available. Studios from $125/month and Hot Desks from $100/month. Visit  for more information or 610.745.4013 or email at to schedule a tour!
