Introducing the Design Studio at NDT Broadgate.
From conception, NDT Broadgate has been a design-led project, and far and away the most exciting space at NDT Broadgate is the Design Studio.
Over the last year we've been listening to artists, in particular designers, who can be especially isolated while also shouldering many hidden costs in their practice. This design studio is a direct response to these challenges.
Consisting of 40 individual design stations and work spaces, a large group workspace, storage facilities, and a shared making space, our Design Studio is a space for independent work, a place to bring collaborators, a site for presentations and workshops, and above all, an active site for the cross-pollination of artists.
A home for freelance designers, in Central London, completely free for a whole year.
As part of the Design Studio we are offering a number of year-long residencies.
We are currently looking for 20 designers to support with studio space over the next year. Giving each access to:
- An individual design workstation
- Individual shelving & a lockable cupboard/drawer unit.
- Shared storage space for larger items
- 24/7 access.

Hotdesk Space For Designers
Alongside permanent residents, as an alternative to the theatre foyers and coffee shops that provide temporary workplaces for designers, we will be creating a model for flexible usage to maximise the use of the space.
We'll be announcing these opportunities in due course.
Studio Open Day & Mailing List
We're hosting an open day at the Design Studio, inviting designers to visit the spaces and meet the team, on the 15th September between 4:00pm and 6:30pm. This will be to give a tour of NDT Broadgate and to see the design studio.
To register for the open day, and sign up to the Desgin Studio mailer, please visit here. A team member will be in touch to book in a slot to visit.
Help Us Shape It
We have big plans for building the studio culture of designers at Broadgate, as well as forging strong links to existing design networks across the country, to create a community that outlives the time we have at Broadgate.
This is being headed up by NDT's Staff Associate Designer, Shankho Chaudhuri. If you’d like to discuss anything, specifically about the design studio, please do email him at [email protected].
