Much of the current accommodation has had to be created in existing buildings which are compromised in terms of their flexibility, design and performance.

The Tileyard studios building is designed to provide the flexible and environmentally sustainable workplace sought by leading companies in the creative sector.

The space can readily be adapted to provide space for start ups with space rented on an individual desk basis. Small and medium sized lettings are also supported -with the capacity to lease units of between 200-500m2.

As companies grow, they demand larger floor plates to facilitate communication as well as increase the quality of their working environment. Both ambitions are met by the new Tileyard Studios building.

The building adopts innovative and progressive environmental strategies to deliver a low energy healthy workplace.

A displacement ventilation system allied to exposed structure minimises the building’s energy requirements. Considerations of health and well-being inform the decision to allow a high degree of individual control over the building’s internal environment.
