Please note that RAW made every effort to secure a wheelchair accessible space, but viable spaces were extremely limited to us due the outstanding building noise-allowance requirements of our taiko activities.

  • Studio RAW is located on the top/second floor of a low-rise building, and unfortunately, it is not wheelchair accessible. To access the studio, visitors must walk up one flight of stairs (20 steps) with railing. The stairwell is 45” wide.
