The founders of E/L Studios in their live/work carriage house.
Over the past few years, UrbanTurf has featured a variety of live/work spaces, from a renovated carriage house that is both a home and the office of an architectural firm, a rowhouse with a retail space on the ground level, and new-construction artist studios with enough space to live and create art.
Yesterday, condo developers Lock 7 tried to gauge the demand for such spaces in DC.
We thought we would pose the question to our readers. So, UrbanTurf wants to know: would you buy a live/work space? Whether it’s a condo above a storefront, or a big loft with a studio area, is a live/work set-up appealing to you? How many people out there like the concept so much that they would buy such a space?
Please respond to our quick poll, then let us know in the comments why you answered what you did.
