London’s new design district
Design District is a permanent home for the creative industries — 16 buildings by eight pioneering architects, one minute from North Greenwich Underground station. Rent a desk, a floor or an entire building and find a new way of working. With affordable spaces, comprehensive facilities and flexible leases, everything is designed to help creative Londoners thrive.
Blank canvas studios ready to make your own. From coding to carpentry, these spaces are designed for spreading out, thinking big and turning ideas into reality.
Turn up and get down to work knowing practicalities like cleaning and maintenance are taken care of. These studios mean more space and time for the important things.
