Edit house Stitch has officially opened its new space in Newburgh Street after its move from its original home on Kingly Street to a purpose-built facility in a bigger space.
Commenting on the reason for leaving their address on Kingly Street, Tim Hardy and Leo King, Stitch co-owners, said: “We’ve given ourselves the chance to grow and develop further with this new space. It’s a brilliant working environment and gives everyone the room they need to be their most creative selves. Stitch was born in the Kingly Street facility and we loved it there, but we just got too big for it. We started off with four edit suites, built a fifth and then needed more!”
The new facility is spread over two floors and contains a client area, a communal space and eight edit suites. Tim Hardy and Leo King said that it was important for the company to stay in Soho. “Not only did we stay in Soho, we only moved one street away. We all love Soho and really wanted to remain in the area. The heart and soul of the industry is definitely still in W1.”
Discussing the design, Hardy and King said: “We were really keen on having a social space and wanted to make as much as possible of the natural light. We now have suites available to our editing assistants so they can hone their craft in the right environment with support from our senior editors. And (most importantly) we still have a roof terrace!”
In the past year, Stitch has recruited two new editors, signing Nicholas Larroquere and, most recently, Jack Singer. The two now work alongside editors and founding partners Leo King and Tim Hardy and editors Phil Currie, Max Windows, Paul O’Reilly and Charlie Reddie.
