Martock Workspace started life as disused, derelict farm buildings. Since then we have redeveloped the space, transforming five redundant barns and a timber office to create studios, offices and light industrial units of various sizes and rents, all centred around The Hub Cafe and stunning kitchen garden.
The site has been landscaped with nature in mind, planting perennials, herbs and wild flowers and meadows to encourage local wildlife, that along with rural views towards Ham Hill, create a wonderful place to work.
Renewable energy has been introduced where possible, using solar PV panels and rainwater harvesting systems.
The next phase of work will see the addition of three studio pods, made from recycled shipping containers, and over-clad in combinations of steel, timber and rusty corten steel.
After that, there are plans for a new ham stone cafe, and the remaining three barns and two grain silos to be redeveloped.
The ultimate aim is to attract a diverse range of services and develop a creative community centre for Martock and the surrounding areas.
