rics pro yorkshire awards 2013 shortlist

PARKdesigned are pleased to announce that their collaborative project with Duke Studios has been short-listed for the both the Design & Innovation and Commercial categories at the RICS Pro-Yorkshire Awards 2013.

Duke Studios is a multidisciplinary creative space which has given Yorkshire’s brightest minds all the thinking space they need. In an ambitious urban regeneration project, the 7000sqft space in Munro House overlooking Leeds bus station has been transformed into an open plan, design-led haven for creative collaboration.

The project is a mixture of studio spaces, co-working and desk rentals which all have individual designs.  Duke Studios has become a creative hub in which facilitates knowledge exchange, encourages networking, spark collaboration on joint projects and stimulates business growth. 

Through careful design and resourceful thinking a dilapidated and dated space has been given a new lease of life. Not only the space but Leeds itself has had a much needed creative boost and a new creative community has been born.
