New practices: Studio TILT

The latest in a series of practice profiles looking at architects who have recently decided to go it alone either through choice or redundancy

Studio TILT, East London

Main people: Dermot Egan, Oliver Marlow

Founded: December 2010

What work do you have? We’ve just completed two new spaces for Club Workspace, a London based network of co-working spaces. Co-design underpins our ability to design collaborative spaces, and has been key to the success of our projects with the NHS, the Design Council and The Southbank Centre.

What are your ambitions? To become known for shifting the paradigm of how space is designed and implemented, transforming the way people interact with each other and the spaces around them.

What are the biggest challenges you face? The recession has been positive for us. We’re growing and increasing our project base. Hard times force people to rethink the old ways and plan constructively for the future and we’ve benefited from that, bringing an innovative yet cost effective way to deliver great design.

We see our codesign approach gaining greater recognition as codesign itself  becomes seen as an integral part of designing space in the future. It’s very exciting to be a part of a movement that places users at the heart of design and we hope that we can develop upon our initial success.

How are you marketing yourself? Currently via word of mouth, as clients continue to recommend us.

Which recent scheme has inspired you most? Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière in Paris, by Edouard Francois.
