DS2 @ At West Bar

On the up and coming edge of West Bar Square are some of Sheffield’s finest historic old city buildings and we’re in one of them. Next door to The National Emergency Services Museum sits a cottage, built in 1794 as one in three pairs, sadly this is the last one standing. A real charmer, you can’t help but fall for it.

From the time it was built right though to it’s new lease of life as Desk.Space flexible offices, it’s always been a start-up, small business home. In it’s early years the street was bustling with residential dwellings, shops, small artisan workshops and factories, all with residential quarters close by.

Our space was divided into 2 dwellings and shop fronts and housed mostly leather makers and cheese makers!

Later, after work you would have been able to stroll next door to The Tankard inn and through into the Brittania Music Hall, now sadly burned down. Ironically, on that ground now sits the National Emergency Services Museum’s fleet of emergency vehicles! So, if you’ve ever fancied making your brew with fantastic views of Sheffield’s retired lifeboat, you’re in for an exclusive here.

In keeping with the history then, Desk.Space hope to house even more entrepreneurs in the area for years to come. And although the music hall is no more, you are within a short walk into the heart of the bars and restaurants of the Kelham Island Quarter.

Bringing the building into the 21st Century was our first priority and the whole place has been rewired, replastered, with new floors and several licks of paint. Did we mention it’s Grade II listed? So yes, it took a while!

Ollie Allen (BBC’s Money For Nothing – link) designed a Desk.Space bespoke furniture range including desks, tables, cladding, movable shelving and storage, purpose built for the flexible office user. The modular, wooden and metal designs create the office you wish you had at home, for that easy transition from solitary working to coworking in a community of talented and focused locals.

As with all our spaces you have 24hour access, super speedy broadband, free caffeine, safe clean facilities and here you get access to the purpose-built meeting room.
