Reedspace was started in 2000 to develop what became The Courtyard in Bracknell. I had already developed a number of small office buildings in London, and wanted to apply what had been learnt at a larger scale. Developing, designing, building and managing just one building type has enabled a greater depth of expertise. Every new building is influenced by what worked and what didn’t on the previous ones, supplemented by constant occupier feedback. The best studios have simple open plan layouts, heavy exposed structure and high ceilings combined with maximum daylight and natural ventilation.
The Kings Terrace studio was developed in 1987 and has been our base ever since. The front facade became the Reedspace logo, and it is on a cobbled mews in the Camden Town Conservation Area.
It lies halfway between Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross stations to the South, and Camden Market to the North.
