RIBA offers emerging practices home for £300 a month

  • Comment

The RIBA is set to launch a new central London workspace for emerging practices

The ‘incubator’ space will be based in mews houses behind the RIBA’s new offices at 76 Portland Place which were recently completed by Theis and Khan.

The mews, which also houses the institute’s regional offices, will provide desk space for 14 emerging architects looking for a central London postcode.

Managed by RIBA London, a place in its building will set architects back £300 a month, with rents set to rise in the second year.

Practices will be able to rent up to three desks and will also receive training and business mentoring.

Start-ups can keep the desks for up to two years, after which the institute hopes they will have outgrown the space.

Practices are invited to apply for the opportunity to take up the office space and a shortlist will be invited to interview in June.

A selection committee including Dale Sinclair, RIBA vice president practice and profession, Anthony Clerici, RIBA vice president nations and regions and membership, and RIBA London interim director Owen Wainhouse, will judge applications based on their business plan, and ability to benefit from the experience.
