about us

Meanwhile Creative support the creative and entrepreneurial minds of Bristol, Cardiff and Manchester by establishing lively places to work in the heart of our cities. We do this by:
  1. Unlocking dormant commercial space for positive use
  2. Turning it into flexible, affordable workspace for creatives, makers, micro-enterprise and small businesses.
In Bristol, we manage Pithay Studios, Deben House, Freestone Studios, Kingsland Studios, Lincoln Street Warehouse, St Thomas Studios and 36 King Street. In Cardiff, we run Meanwhile House Cardiff and sister project Cardiff Containers. And from November 2018, we move into Manchester too. All in all, our projects currently support more than 250 creative businesses and start-ups. Whether it's a months' lease to complete a project or a longer-term home for your company to grow and develop, we can help!
