Sorting Office

Through a working partnership, ‘a space’ and Eastleigh Borough Council, opened the Sorting Office in 2013 to create offered studio space in the Eastleigh town centre. The project created 16 spaces for designer-makers to work within a supportive environment that developed their practices and grew their creative businesses.

Converted from the former Royal Mail Sorting Office built in the 1920s, this unique space offers open plan units, lockable private units and the production house, a large versatile project space.

After four fantastic years managing the Sorting Office, and having established it as a leading studio project in the region ‘a space’ handed the management of the studios over to Eastleigh Borough Council in 2017.
