Refurbishment and reuse

Former police station repurposed as artist's studios and shared workspaces

Former police station repurposed as artist's studios and shared workspaces 





As part of the regeneration of Queen Street in Colchester town centre, Ash Sakula are renovating a grade 2 listed building, a former Police Station, into a creative business centre for Colchester Borough Council and SPACE Studios.

The project will provide 40 studios for artists alongside coworking, hotdesking and meeting spaces for creative industries. A large street-facing café opens out into a courtyard at the rear, and will be open to the public throughout the day. The ground floor bar area will host evening talks, lectures and events.

The project is on site and will be completed in late 2016.
