Creative Spaces


Sparkling offices and studios in a meticulous reconstruction of one of the most beautiful and historic buildings in Birmingham… set around three top lit courtyards garlanded with spectacular art works and flying glass bridges… inhabited by a congenial and vibrant working community of independent enterprises drawn from the worlds of art, music information technology, the media, film, entertainment and creative commerce.
