In partnership with property developers General Projects and studio operators Arebyte, the first Studiomakers site opened in Clerkenwell, London in September 2016, with 35 studios, 15 desk spaces, 3 offices for creative organisations and 2 galleries. The project will see use of a meanwhile space for one year before the redevelopment of the property, and new affordable workspace included within the new design.
At the site of an office block on Baker Street in June 2016, one office floor was turned into a temporary gallery space, housing The Empire Remains Shop, and artist studio space. Creative work hub and gallery The Koppel Project have occupied the ground and lower ground floor, before redevelopment by Gertler Properties where two new affordable studios will be included in the new complex.
In April 2016, the café space in a new residential development by Realstar Group in New Cross was allocated long-term space to a curated programme of new art projects by students from Goldsmiths College across the road.
