The front door of Hackspace 1.0

The first Nottingham Hackspace was based inside the The Art Organisation. It started as just one storage room, but expanded into a small workshop with a larger office space. It had access to a shared hall that could be used for events and a large corridor that was converted into a small private cinema.
