Gabriel’s Wharf is a highly popular riverside destination with local workers, residents and visitors alike. Originally old garages now with shop-fronts added, the units make excellent retail design studios. The restaurants and cafes, some overlooking the river, offer local employees a chance to escape from their offices. The blank wall of the London Studios was painted to provide an imaginative backdrop. The opening of Gabriel’s Wharf in 1988 brought commercial and public life to an area that had long been derelict and signalled the ‘rebirth’ of the South Bank. It also allowed Coin Street Community Builders to demonstrate to funders and prospective tenants that uses proposed for the more ambitious Oxo Tower Wharf development were viable.
The design shops at Gabriel’s Wharf are exclusively run by small businesses who design and manufacture their own products, the majority of products for sale will have been made by the person selling it to you. If you can’t find exactly what you are looking for it is possible to commission many of the designers directly.
