Commissioned by Gardiner Haskins in the 19th century, Soapworks has been home to manufacturing for hundreds of years.
With award winning architects Woods Bagot, we are sensitively respecting the original building while infusing a new identity that will reimagine the place for many years to come.
Planned to be a new district with homes, workspace and cultural space; all set around a new public square including biodiverse green spaces, Soapworks will be connected to the city’s commercial centre at Temple Quay and the cultural quarter at Old Market.
Soapworks will deliver 180,000 sq ft of flexible workspace to meet demand in Bristol, especially as corporates shift to a hub and spoke office model and increase their footprint in key regional cities.
In addition, 243 new Build-to-Rent homes (with 20% affordable) and create space for independent retail and a vibrant food and drink offer, including Bristol’s first purpose-built food hall.
