Business studios

See our Studios to Let page for updates on available studios.

Sum Studios opened in June 2013 with the business building, a carefully revived space that brings the fast-paced demands of creative and digital businesses to life in a lovingly revived Victorian architectural masterpiece.

The new building has been an amazing success, and has been fully let since 18 months of opening. With small studios of just 10sqm to large bright 120sqm studios, Sum sets the benchmark for creative workspace in Sheffield. The mix of beautiful Victorian architecture and confident, modern interventions has won various RIBA awards and Sheffield Civic Trust Design Awards for designs and sustainability.

Sum Studios adds up to an awesome new home for creatively minded businesses in Sheffield, and is one of the friendliest buildings you could ever work in. Why Sum? Working life at Sum Studios will be made all the better by:

  • Voice-over-IP phone system and fast broadband throughout
  • 24/7 access and full security systems
  • Low carbon output / low energy use – solar powered, grey water recycling and low cost to run
  • Studios from 10 to 120 sq.m  – a size and cost to suit all
  • Meeting Room free to tenants
  • Secure parking
  • Parkland surrounds
  • And a great Pub right next door! (Brothers Arms)

In time, Sum will grow further. Once funding is secured, the business building will be followed by the opening of studios for artists and makers, workshop spaces, more small business space, a rehearsal hall, meeting and training spaces and a new events venue and café (see Future Developments).

When completed, Sum Studios will be a thriving, lively community of business, arts and community users, sharing, growing and marking a new chapter in the life of this beautiful local landmark. Our amazing community will work, play, make, and meet here; we will be part of a living breathing city story, a thriving place made of all kinds of people.

This building is about its people – meet our full list of Tenant Businesses here.
