Studio letting policy
SVA operates a selection process for studio spaces. As part of this SVA has developed a studio letting policy in response to the increased demand for space, the higher professional and public profile of SVA as an organisation, and a desire to create a stimulating and creative working environment for all users of the newly refurbished building.
