SPACE AVAILABLE

FIRST FLOOR
WORK SPACE

This floor covers 338 square metres of rentable work space.  We support local tenants who need affordable space (generally artistic, creative, tech and community organisations). This space will be partitioned into modular units that can be rented as office or studio space. They will be separate from the public areas, secure and lockable, but we want to create open and collaborative atmosphere amongst people who rent them (similar to Rock House). The fine detail is being currently fine tuned for how this space will look but do get in touch if you’re a small business or individual looking for capped rent space.

SECOND FLOOR
ARTIST-MAKER SPACE

This floor covers 435 square metres of space to be used as an artist-maker floor, managed by a Floor Manager who lease the majority of the floor and sublet the space.

The space will be available until 2021 when the second and third floor will be repurposed as affordable housing.

See information about the Floor Manager opportunity (deadline for applications 26 April) and rents for the whole floor here – Artist-Maker Space Manager pack

THIRD FLOOR
ROUGH SPACE

This floor covers 485 square metres. This is rough space at the moment with no use planned. It will be available until 2021 when the second and third floor will be repurposed as affordable housing.

We don’t plan to do much renovation to this floor beyond the basics (waterproofing, window repairs etc.) but if you have an idea about how it could be used please get in touch.

There will be a construction workshop on this floor too where local people could be invited to take part in renovation tasks to regenerate the building.

FOURTH FLOOR
ROOF GARDEN AND BAR/COMMON ROOM

Ideas for this space are still in development as the roof needs urgent repairs to waterproof the building. We hope to eventually remove it completely to cultivate a beautiful garden and bar/common room space where tenants and the public can enjoy panoramic views of the town and ocean.

Get in touch if you’re interested. See floor plans here – OB Fourth Floor Areas 30thOct18

GROUND FLOOR
RETAIL SPACE

Direct access from Cambridge Road, the 37 metre squared retail space is at the front of the building and the most obvious point for public access. We’re looking for a local retail tenant who is excited to be part of our growing community.

We are carrying out an options appraisal to decide the most appropriate use of the bottom three floors so if you have an idea for how you could use space on these floors, please do get in touch to be considered as part of the appraisal with a proposal.

MEZZANINE

This space is unusual with lower ceilings than the other floors as well as direct natural light from the glass windows in the pavement above. One possible use for this floor that we’re currently exploring is a hydroponic growing project akin to this award winning farm underneath the busy streets of Clapham.

ALLEY LEVEL

The most unusual space of them all. 900 square metres of enormous ceilings, winding vaulted tunnels, nooks and crannies and even some old machinery from the OB’s past life – this space has the potential to be something truly special.
