Welcome to the unique world of Brookland Artspace Lofts, a spectacular arts complex built in two phases, situated in the heart of Washington’s Brookland neighborhood since 2011. Our live/work artist housing is the ideal place for artists and their families to call home in a space that is truly inspiring. With a total area of 47,000 sq. ft., Brookland Artspace Lofts offers 41 units with both residential and studio space for artists.

Picture this - walking into a space that is designed to inspire and create, surrounded by fellow artists and an environment that oozes creativity. The performance and rehearsal spaces are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to create the perfect atmosphere for showcasing your talent. You will have access to an education center, administrative space, and even an outdoor reception and performance plaza, where you can showcase your creativity to the community.

We understand the challenges artists face in finding affordable housing and workspace, and that is why Brookland Artspace Lofts is the perfect solution. Our affordable artist housing is the ideal place for you to live and work. In 2006, the City’s Department of Housing and Community Development asked Artspace to help Dance Place, expand and renovate its facility. Dance Place, the District’s most prolific presenter of modern dance, has anchored the neighborhood since 1986 and helped generate a renaissance of development and investment in the area. Artspace and Dance Place subsequently formed a partnership to create this unique arts complex that offers everything you need to pursue your artistic passion.

Come and join us in this incredible space and take advantage of this unique opportunity. You owe it to yourself to explore your artistic talents in a place that is specifically designed to inspire you. Take the first step towards living your dream today and schedule your tour.
