Space 1

With floor-to-ceiling views of the river Thames and the Canary Wharf skyline, Space 1 provides a striking setting for large-scale events and displays.

In the daytime, the seven-metre high space is flooded with natural light, while at dusk the windows glow with the lights of the city across the river. The design is understated and luxurious, with black walls and polished concrete floors.

Two designer raw steel staircases lead to mezzanine levels, and glass doors provide direct access to the outside space of the Showground, a riverside terrace that can accommodate a further 7,000 guests outdoors.

Space 1 is suited to a range of uses, with LED lights that bathe the space and L’Ecoustic speakers. It would be the ideal venue for exhibitions and conferences, large-scale automotive and product launches, and for weddings and private parties that spill onto the terrace.
