Java Studios is North Brooklyn’s Creative Hub for Artists

Tucked away in the northern tip of Brooklyn, there is a hub for creatives where creativity and innovation flows freely. Where artists and entrepreneurs alike gather to manifest their vision and collaborate with their counterparts. Where locals find peace to fuel their focus and manifest their vision. From an outdoor event space to a fine-art gallery and 150+ studio and office spaces, Java Studios (252 Java St) has emerged as platform for creation, owned and operated by artists.

As artists themselves, the owners at Java have worked hard to provide space and opportunities to like-minded people. From architects to writers, designers to painters, and non-profits to small businesses, the inhabitants have a diverse range of focus. And it’s this diversity that sets Java apart from similar workspaces-it’s not the studios, amenities, or affordability-it’s the surrounding inhabitants who become neighbors, collaborators, sources of support and inspiration. Art cannot be created in a vacuum-it both reflects and regards the world around it. To be inspired is to be connected, and that’s what Java provides.

In keeping with the larger Java ethos, the physical space has been designed to fit the needs of the its occupants. Unlike other communal workspaces, the studios at Java are private and individualized-your work environment is entirely customizable, and the shared amenities are there to support your needs. The Java Project-a fine-art gallery on the first floor-presents new exhibitions each month, and also features inhabitants’ work. Other amenities include an outdoor spaces, a conference room, slop sinks, WiFi and utilities, package reception, and an on-site handyman, all of which are free and readily available.

The outdoor venue, Java Outback, has been revamped in anticipation of the many upcoming events. For the third year in a row, Java will again host the 2018 Greenpoint Open Studios launch party. The creative spirit and community, along with Java’s support of small businesses, make it the perfect place to kick off a weekend of GOS.
