Studio TILT was tasked with clarifying the proposal and designing the concept for an incubator centre for Catford Bow Arts. The incubator centre provides space which supports start-ups and early stage companies with a particular focus on knowledge-based industries and digital media businesses.
Catford Bow Arts’ model is based on supporting early career designers and artists; ensuring their business costs are both affordable and sustainable in the context of their profitability in their startup years. The 4th floor consists of 10,000 ft2 gross area, translating to approximately 7,800 ft2 of net possible studio space. Spaces range from 150-200 ft2, built on an open plan to accommodate 40-45 emerging fashion designers, artists and creative businesses.
