Brighouse’s first co-working space, BrigHub, has celebrated 12-months of business by launching three therapy rooms and a new art club. The completed renovation has seen the building undergo a six-figure investment and 12 rooms reinvigorated to house the co-working space.
BrigHub provides users with over three floors and 2,780 sq ft of space, allowing them to connect and collaborate with other regional businesses and freelancers.
Since collecting the keys in March 2021, founders Carl and Stefanie Hopkins have revitalised Vulcan House, the Victorian building and former pub to create BrigHub. The building is also home to Stefanie’s PR, social media and content agency Faith.
One year on and BrigHub has completed work on three new therapy rooms in the Vulcan Vaults. The vaults offer a unique space for therapy and creativity, from art classes to yoga and massage. The spaces can be booked on a flexible hourly basis and provides the perfect relaxing therapy, creative or conversation space.
The vaults are also being utilised by the newly launched Brighaus Art Group, which has been launched by Carl to bring those together who are interested in starting or reviving an interest in creative and crafting arts.
The art group regularly holds classes and art sessions run by Carl and local artists including sketching, live drawing and workshops.
The flexible co-working space is also home to an education services provider and digital agency who have joined BrigHub as full-time members alongside those who hot desk at the workspace on a regular basis.
Stefanie, who has run Faith for 14 years and founder of BrigHub, said: “We are excited to have finished the final three rooms for BrigHub to offer a unique space to the community that is available for talking therapy and creative classes, workshops and meetings.
“The past 12 months have seen Vulcan House undergo a huge renovation and we have been able to breathe life back into a fantastic space and offer flexible co-working space to the region.
