“A community of creative people who want to help each other”

London City Island is providing creative workspace, co-working and affordable studios catering for everyone, from architects to ceramicists and fashion designers.

Ballymore’s decision to provide workspace as part of the island’s facilities is a timely response to the urgent need for affordable spaces for creative production across the capital. Here we talk to Deborah Spink founder of Kokomelt, sustainable tailor Claire Couchman, Jagoda Keshani founder of Yago and digital artist, Paul Mortimer about co-working and life on the island. The studios are managed by arebyte.
