WHAT IS MAKEN STUDIOS?

We provide rentable space and resources to interdisciplinary artists, businesses, and manufacturers. The MaKen Studios brand consists of two industrial buildings that sit a block away from each other–aptly named MaKen North and MaKen South–that can accommodate a multitude of businesses and special events. The revival of these two buildings and the talent within are poised to make Kensington a destination for cultural and economic opportunity.
