A cozy studio for designers, illustrators, & other creative people in the heart of Carroll Gardens

Design Town is a space for creative people who don’t take themselves too seriously.

The latest iteration in a series of studio spaces, Design Town is the home of a tight-knit creative community who is always looking for more pals. After moving from DUMBO to Gowanus to deeper Gowanus, this group of friends and collaborators have found their home in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. It might not be a Townhouse, and it’s certainly not big enough to be a Small City, but this apartment-style studio with a baby storefront is the home-away-from home for designers locally and remote (especially if you’re coming in from Lousiville!).

Design Town is two floors of a Carroll Gardens brownstone that blends desk and social space. Half creative studio, half social club, full of plants and always come as you are. Hang out at our mini-bar or big-ass booth, grab a slice from Lucali’s next door and catch the sunset on the patio. Whatever it is, we want it to be chill.

We’ve got big plans for our small space and we want you to know you’re always welcome. Come and knock on our door, we’ve been waiting for you!
