The Macau Design Center (MDC) is now accepting applications from local design companies to occupy two recently vacated studios.
The application period is until November 10. The studios are leased for MOP11.59 per square foot per month, according to MDC, and the maximum length of lease is three years, with extensions reviewed according to the tenant’s annual performance.
The Center, once home to 12 design studios, has grown to accommodate 25 studios spread over four floors; the sizes of the studios range from 240 square feet to 1,150 square feet.
The studios are equipped with lighting, air-conditioning, shared meeting rooms, printing services and reception and security facilities. Tenants can also make use of MDC’s marketing and promotion channels to participate in events such as the Beijing International Fair for Trade in Services, the Dynamic Macao Business and Trade Fair in Shenzhen, and the China Hangzhou Cultural and Creative Industry Expo.
MDC was established in 2014 with the aim of cultivating the local design sector by providing a fully-serviced and comfortable working environment for companies and professionals at below-market rates. MDC endeavors to support the industry by sparing start- up organizations the burden of high rent and building maintenance costs.
It also acts as a hub for local designers to exchange ideas and further the reach of their products to the local, mainland and international markets.
