New co-working space Framework opens in Bristol city centre

A new co-working space for Bristol’s tech and digital businesses has opened on King Street in the city.

Start-up hub Framework, which is adjacent to Bristol Old Vic, is for entrepreneurs who code, design and support the city’s growing tech sector.

The Grade II warehouse has floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed beams, whitewashed stone walls and furniture by cult Danish design company HAY and bespoke interiors by Bristol’s Shape Studio.

Framework is part of the Forward Space family of co-working spaces which includes Boxworks - the development of 20 shipping containers at Temple Meads that opened in 2015.

Gavin Eddy, chief executive and founder, said: “Our target clients are no longer content to work in conventional corporate offices.

“For them, design and location are increasingly important factors in choosing a workspace.

“We try hard to deliver something truly innovative and exciting each time we take on a new project. No two of our buildings are the same”.

Inside the building there are desks and team pods, a co-working lounge, library, collaboration space, meeting rooms and an event space.

It also has gigabit fibre, free barista coffee and tea, and an extensive events programme to support companies with growth and wellbeing.

Ben Byford, host and events manager, added: “A key differentiator will be our events.

“As well as hosting member’s events, Framework will provide a much-needed venue for the wider Bristol tech community to host talks, conferences, business development opportunities and workshops.

Framework is offering free trial days. To find out more, visit
