The Craic: Bristol Bridge House was our second ‘meanwhile’ project. The developers had grand ambitions for a residential conversion but nothing was happening in the meantime. We offered to take the space on a quarterly rolling contract and before we knew it we were erecting chipboard partitions and painting doors in bright, primary colours.
Following the fit-out, we quickly filled the space with small businesses and individuals with creative pursuits including Laura M Davey Dressmaking, Pearl Bespoke, Funi Beanies and Entirety clothing. The project was short-lived as conversion plans became a reality; the tenants all seemed to agree it had been a great place to call home for that period.
You can find out all sorts of useful information about using our office and studio space here.
