The marketplace for short-term space.
Space in the Raw is the marketplace for short-term users to secure vacant spaces to produce unique environments. We combine digital automation and premium service to create a frictionless process for all parties. Whether you are building a temporary office, shooting a film or producing a large scale event or activation, we are here to support your vision.
How It Works
Search Based on Your Needs
We provide a level of specificity for our locations that no other venue search engine offers.
Book Your Space
After quick approval from your property of choice, our booking engine automatically populates a comprehensive contract with your needs. After you review and accept the contract and complete the checkout process, the landlord gives final confirmation. Once confirmed, you receive your exhibits to sign.
We’re There Every Step of The Way
An account manager will work with you through the entire process, including setup and breakdown. We get your pain points and we are here to help no matter your vision.
How do you leave a lasting impression on your guests? Book a space they’ve never seen before.
Film + Photo
Spaces small enough for editorial shoots or large enough to house a full movie set.
Temporary residency for artists or temporary performance space for theatre.
Short-term commitment for brands to leave an impression with their consumers and/or test a new market.
Coworking spaces are great for a non-committal office solution but terrible if your company culture doesn’t include a foosball table and beer keg.
