“Be part of a dynamic, biophilic and innovative co-working environment created for individuals, start-up businesses and SMEs seeking flexible space, inspiration, collaboration, and community. Find space to breathe, create and rejuvenate in our Manchester offices… Whether you’re looking to concentrate or socialise, each area offers a unique proposition designed for productivity and play.”

So say the team behind Use.Space, a genuinely unique, and — impressively — privately owned co-working address that actively wants to nurture professional communities, helping connect big thinkers with grand ideas, and start-ups with potential partners. If all that sounds like hype, then one look at what this beautifully conceived complex has to offer should dispel any doubts. The Paddock Street development boasts boardrooms for serious business, whether that’s a team meeting or a client briefing session, private offices for firms that need to be self-contained, and two areas dominated by desks-for-hire, allowing entrepreneurs a chance to forge ahead in an environment that naturally promotes creativity and ingenuity. 

Suffice to say, this barely scratches the surface. Dig deeper, and you’ll find breakout areas complete with vivid, artistic design work, a stand-alone event space available to rent for one-off gatherings — from photo shoots to product launches — and the meet-up café, a cornerstone of Use.Space as a whole. Still not satisfied? How about the Garden of Wonderland, which looks to bring the inside outside, and vice versa, serving as a core part of the biophilic principles at the heart of this innovation hub. Meanwhile, the Mindful Green Room only accentuates the importance of nature and plants to the operation. Free parking, tea and coffee, high-speed WiFi and an open, approachable, ear-to-the-ground attitude all come as standard, making one thing clear here: you’ll have to go a long way to find a more suitable home in this city for forward-thinking, independent businesses.
