A NEW venture has revolutionised the future of co-working in Brighton.

The Projects signals a change in the way freelancers, start-ups and small businesses operate.

There is the chance to work from a building in Ship Street.

The new hub will combine the elements of a members’ club with an environment for creative entrepreneurs to thrive.

Operations manager Beth Lewis said: “The mixture of both serene spaces for concentration and areas for relaxation show that The Projects genuinely cares about making its members’ lives more enjoyable.

“They’ve not only incorporated into the building but also into our offerings, which include concierge services.

“We’re already a very warm, nurturing community.

“We’ve got the personal touches of a members’ club and that means truly knowing our members and wanting to help them in any way that we can.”

The story of the Grade II listed building is closely linked to the city’s history.

William Attree, the first solicitor in Brighton, purchased numbers 8 and 9 Ship Street in 1773.

He used one for his private home and the other for offices for one of the few solicitor firms open at the time.

Attree was employed by The Prince of Wales, later George IV, on multiple occasions to help buy more land to accommodate the build and extension of the Royal Pavilion.

William was not paid for his services but, in lieu of payment, George donated a portrait of himself.

The enterprising spirit lives on in The Projects which will soon be home to a number of collaborative, community orientated brands.

The Projects has three floors of co-working space, seven fully serviced offices, high-spec meeting rooms and event spaces.

It also has its own café, Lost In The Projects, from the team behind Lost in the Lanes.

It has a bar stocked with beer, wine and spirits, a games room and roof terrace.

There will also be a regular programme of events for members and non-members, including masterclasses led by industry experts.

The Projects has partnered with a number of businesses, including Hotel Du Vin and The Walrus, to offer exclusive members discounts.

They’ve also started to work with the University of Brighton to offer one talented graduate and rising star entrepreneur a year’s free membership to develop their business.

The Projects’ motto, “beautiful things happen when we work together”, is visible in everything they do, helping businesses grow and making their members’ personal lives a little easier, too.
