Another architect here agreeing that having an architect to assist you will be valuable. Not sure what market you are in, but you can usually find a sole practitioner who would be willing to work for an hourly rate while you are in the searching phase. Knowledge of codes and uses and helping you understand how much space you will need are some of the many things that they bring to the table. Finding one can be difficult, short of calling all of the local architects. You could try calling people you know who have built studios to see who they used. You certainly want to spend some time interviewing them to ensure that you can work well together, and that they get what you are trying to do. As with any profession, there is a range of personalities and philosophies, and you want someone who gets coworking.

Wondering at what point do you need to consider bringing one on and how do you find someone trustworthy (yet affordable!).
Since our space is not a traditional coworking space and has some specific needs I’m wondering that having one while looking at possible real estate would be helpful or no?
