Eastern Angles is an NPO theatre company based in both Ipswich and Peterborough. We worked with EA to help them develop a strategy and design for a new coworking and community space located in a grade II listed building on Gatacre Road in Ipswich, currently the home of the Suffolk Record Office. The main hall and ancillary rooms are to be transformed into vibrant, accessible, sustainable and affordable spaces to support a mix of start-up businesses. The design proposals comprise of a number of small improvements that will have a big impact on the use and quality of the existing spaces for their proposed use in this new chapter of the building's history.
Part of our assistance involved preparing a document to support their bid for Arts Council funding. This document also served as a toolkit of information to enable the organisation to move ahead with the project themselves.
