Hey everyone!

So I've been doing some research lately into studio spaces, and I wanted ask everyone some questions in regard to this. Let's assume your studio would be about the size of a two bedroom apartment, but set up as a creative space.

1) What kind of things would you have in your indie dev studio?
2) Would you be willing to rent out a space if it offered special accommodations?
3) What kind of accommodations would help you in developing your game?

I'll probably think of some more questions later, but let's start here.

Let me add another element.

What if this space also included an apartment you could live in? In other words, a studio building that also functions with apartments with everything you could ask for to develop your game.

Sounds really bad to live in the same place you work.

I´d love to set up a place like this:

Something like a garage is really cool.

In retrospect, I have to agree. Living where you work is more of a compromise for most as a means to save money and having a level of connivence. It's also, unfortunately, not something that can be moderated when trying to pick tenants for a creative living/studio space. Fair house laws apparently put a roadblock for that, but that just means that the space would need to be that much more beneficial in terms of having tools for people to utilize.

I asked a similar question to a lot of illustrators, and most of them end up working from home as well to save on money. It seems that having a studio eats up too much cost unless you have a team you work with, which then having a space to collaborate in that isn't your home is important. Though this still begs the question of what would be ideal for a dev friendly studio space?
