Union St Co-Working Space

A vacant ex-council office transformed into an inspiring creative space.

The Story so far...

Union St. is a meanwhile use project in an ex-council owned building in the city centre.

Over ten years ago it used to be the Housing Office for the council but has been left empty ever since.

CADS and Common people negotiated with the owners to take the building on rent free as long as the rates and building insurance were covered.

The space was not in a good condition however a lot of effort has been put in to transform the office into an inviting and inspirational space.
