The Sharp Project provides flexible space for digital content production in Manchester. PRP worked closely with the City Council in conjunction with Manchester Creative Digital Assets Ltd to convert the 250,000 sq ft Sharp distribution warehouse into affordable, state of the art workspace and provide film, television and music production facilities to attract and nurture digital entrepreneurs. This is the only significant facility of its kind outside London. The internal architecture adopts a stripped backed industrial aesthetic and provides a highly-serviced, functional, blank canvas that the tenants can personalise and adapt over time.
The practice has gone on to design Space Studios for the same client also in Manchester.
