Design District is a collection of 16 buildings designed by eight architects, one minute from North Greenwich station. The district is a thriving home for creative businesses offering permanent and purpose-designed workspaces, co-working within Bureau, Canteen an international food hall and bar, an exciting events programme and more.
160+ Creative Businesses
Design District provides a permanent space for London’s creatives to come and work together. The District is a hive of activity with a vibrant and engaged community of designers, makers and creators.
Here to keep London creative
The creative industries are at the heart of what makes London great. In London creative communities are under threat from rocketing rent, and are being squeezed out of established creative districts. Design District offers accessible, affordable work space purpose-made to support creative work of all kinds.
Purpose-made space for creative work
Everything about the district is designed to help creative businesses thrive: permanent buildings to provide security and certainty, with flexible leases to enable businesses to grow in one place. There are options from co-working space to clean studios and dirty workshops, along with places to eat and excercise for all to share.
The services creatives really need
Beyond space, Design District hosts a variety of events programmed for creatives. There are also business services available for tenants covering topics that creative industry professionals so often need help with. We also strive to constantly improve our service, behaving more like a world-class R&D department than a landlord. So as London grows, creatives have a permanent place to stay.
