Prop Stars is situated in downtown Jozi, in the heart of New Doornfontein east of the CBD with easy access to the highway, Joe Slovo Drive and President Street.
As a location for prospective shoots and events, Prop Stars offers four sprawling floors of 2000 square meters each, divided by an authentic central lift shaft.
The building. Marcoza House, dates back to the 1950’s and showcases some interesting architecture from this period, including a turned staircase and open stairwell, red tiles and open face-brick.
As a fully functioning props warehouse, specializing in furniture from different periods, each of the four floors houses items that stretch from infinitely collectible to functional household wares.
From a photographic perspective, one can create stills vignettes using props and furniture to suit the brief – and many stills shoots have successfully utilized this opportunity. Check out the gallery below to see some of the work we’ve shot here, from magazine fashion spreads to advertising campaigns. Also, Prop Stars boasts a studio space for both stills and movie shoots, including a built-in set. Click on Studio for more info and specs.
Thanks to easy access and a flat roof, Prop Stars can also make use of Joburg’s panoramic city views. We have a user friendly roof space with vistas of the mine dumps on the east to the city skyline in the north, This epic space has been utilized for photographic shoots, as well as for drinks parties.
But it is not just the roof that offers a great events space – the interior of the props warehouse is a simple, white-clad space that can be transformed to suit whatever brief with existing furniture and smalls from our well-appointed stock. The added benefit? No transport costs to event locations. Prop Stars also has a separate five- booth ablution facility, as well as separate rooms for designated catering purposes.
Prop stars offers an all-white studio space of 2000 square meters. Within this space is a designated drywall set consisting of a main room – two flats and a windowed wall – with a door leading from this room to a smaller room used as a kitchen, bathroom etc – also two flats and a windowed wall.
The studio is bathed in natural light from windows on three sides (entrance south, walls north, east and west). These windows are shuttered to allow a controlled light environment. The studio space has a five-booth ablution facility, as well as a room for catering and food shot preparation.

Best of all, the studio has full access to all the props and furniture currently available on the floors on shoot days as an added benefit to stylists and art departments, thus saving the production on both transport and excessive art department/styling crew.
