Located in NoMa at 52 O Street NW, Studio 52 is offering studio space for artists and photographers, or "affordable private event space" , that can accommodate up to 150 guests, or can be used for a fashion trunk show, live performance, conference meeting, wedding or retail pop-up.

The perfect use for a historic warehouse space
52 O Street NW is located on a one-block length of O Street just west of North Capitol Street, it was built in 1914 on the site of a small coal and wood yard in what was then a remote and industrial corner of downtown. The building was designed by the German-born architect Clement Didden, who had worked under Richard Morris Hunt in New York assisting in the design of such landmarks as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Vanderbilt estate in Ashville, North Carolina. Over the years, 52 O Street has been home to a meat-packing warehouse, a plumbing company, a Hechts furniture warehouse, and Decca Records, a premier record label. It was in 1978 that Eric Rudd built out 52 O Street as a low-cost art studios.

Rudd, a renowned sculptor now residing in North Adams, Massachusetts, recognized the shortage of affordable studio space for Washington artists. 52 O Street's warehouse structure was ideal for conversion to art studios, since it offered open spaces, soaring ceilings, and tremendous flexibility for arranging large and small studios.
