According to Wikipedia, the definition of a studio is “an artist’s or worker’s workroom.”
As with most European words, this one comes from Latin (Studere) and means to study.
Real estate agents also have their definition of a studio: “A single room, usually small, that is usually taken up by students due to their limited resource.”

Pompous words? Maybe, but it’s all about getting people from different backgrounds and talents working together to achieve greater projects.
There are tons of specialist places (Tech, Music, Photography and other arts) but there are not many places where you can learn about something you have no idea about.

To spread the love for the hashtag: #LeStudio52 – DONE

So here it is, the big question:
When you are in London, living, working, passing by, what is it that you miss and that would help you live, work, relax?
