Entrepreneurial product designers and makers in Brighton & Hove are invited to apply for a place at FIELD, the new rent-free temporary workspace project launching at Preston Barracks on Lewes Road in the New Year.
Any start-up with a big vision to build a business based on an innovative physical product is encouraged to apply via fieldbtn.com from today. The team behind the project are particularly keen to work with businesses pioneering new approaches in the area of workspace design and construction.
James Nettleton, who leads U+I’s work with start-ups and is overseeing FIELD said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer a new temporary home for Brighton’s incredible variety of entrepreneurs, inventors and product designers.
“We want this exciting space to bring together like-minded people in a community that thrives on the free exchange of ideas. Our ultimate goal is to create a large scale campus for high growth product design and technology businesses as part of the regeneration of Preston Barracks. The temporary FIELD project is key to shaping what the future of this place looks like.”
In addition to the workshop spaces, part of the site has also been allocated for The Wood Store, a reclaimed wood furniture maker and recycling enterprise, which was previously based in Circus Street, and zero waste drinks producer Old Tree.
U+I, The University of Brighton and Brighton & Hove City Council are working together with artists and innovators to develop FIELD on the Preston Barracks site.
