What is the difference between a work/live and a live/work space?
There is an important difference between work/live and live/work spaces due to the planning requirements of local planning authorities.
In work/live spaces the emphasis is on the space being used as a non-residential artist studio, with the living area being very small and ancillary. In the case of live/work spaces, the emphasis is equally placed on providing an artist with a home and somewhere to work.
In an area where the local planning authority is keen to increase employment, you are more likely to find work/live spaces and conversely live/work spaces where residential accommodation is a priority.
