Located within CodeBase Edinburgh, the UK's largest technology incubator, the Creative Floor is home to over 20 creative individuals, businesses and organisations.

The Creative Floor is home to freelancers, support organisations and creative studios ranging across sectors, from design, photography and architecture to PR and creative consultancy.

"The Creative Floor was set up in partnership with Codebase by Janine Matheson – former Creative Edinburgh Director and Head of Codebase Stirling – to provide a space for creative practitioners, businesses and innovators working within the creative industries in Scotland. The members of the floor span a range of disciplines, collaborate and work with the residents of the wider Codebase building fostering connections that allow our city to truly thrive as a creative hub and entrepreneurial capital. We thank Codebase for welcoming us into their space and supporting the creative floor as a tangible/physical statement of support for the creative community. It is through our long-running partnership that we help support the creative ecosystem in Scotland and our nation's capital. With members of the creative floor traversing new realms of practice and at the top of their field, the members echo the wonderful work coming out of the wider community at Codebase." - Briana Pegado - Executive Director of Creative Edinburgh
