No interior walls, high ceilings and endless possibility.
It sounds like a dream space for creatives looking for an affordable blank canvas to create, and it could become a reality.
Patrick Hayes, owner of Nashville’s 1767 Designs, wants to gauge the creative community’s interest on a new, 10,000-square-foot co-working space in historic Old Hickory Village, which is just east of Madison.
“We are trying to gauge interest from Nashville artists, like ourselves, who have been priced out of the market in the downtown areas,” Hayes told NOBLE. “We are going to host an open house on Dec. 3 from 1 to 3 p.m. where artists can come out, see the space in its current – and very raw – state and help us imagine the space as it could be.”
1767 is a group of creatives based in Nashville focusing on custom-made, Southwestern-inspired tables, wall art and accents, which is built from wood sourced from homes that were recently torn down in the Nashville area. Their work has been featured throughout Nashville including Urban Cowboy, Thompson Hotel, 909 Flats, Tempered Cafe and many others. 1767 also offers interior design services for both home and commercial spaces.
Hayes said he wants to get feedback on the industrial space from other artists and local creatives who have been priced out of co-working spaces.
“We do not have any restrictions on the size of the spaces that we could potentially build on the inside of the building, nor their uses, and we are asking feedback about what size spaces artists would like, how they would use them, and what they would ideally like to pay for the space,” Hayes told NOLBE.
In order to capture feedback, 1767 is holding an open house on Dec. 3 from 1 to 3 p.m. Guests can RSVP at 1767designs.com/co-work.
P.S. There will be free beer from Jackalope Brewing to get all of those creative ideas flowing.
