The Tetley is a contemporary art gallery in the art deco headquarters of the former Tetley Brewery in central Leeds, with exhibitions, bar and dining. The ground floor is currently used as a welcome space, bar/cafe area, restaurant and small retail space. Our project aims to the Ground floor of the Tetley to increase revenue and create a contemporary, creative environment.

Our MSA LIVE group is working in collaboration with The Tetley. The Tetley is a pioneering centre for contemporary art located in the stunning art deco headquarters of the former Tetley Brewery. From the heart of Leeds' South Bank, they create a platform for amazing emerging artists, present breathtaking free exhibitions and help communities and young people in Leeds find their creative voice.

Their 1930s building was transformed in 2013 to house unique gallery spaces, a learning studio for our award-winning participation programme, an artist residency studio, offices for creative businesses, a busy Bar & Kitchen and welcoming spaces for meetings and events, from performances and parties, to conferences and meetings. For artists, they are mentors and champions, providing support, investment and development time and space. To the public and our communities, they are a destination to explore new and exciting works, enjoy great food and take part in workshops, talks and events. Over 120,000 people each year visit the Tetley to discover, create, relax and learn. The Tetley is supported by Arts Council England, Carlsberg UK, Leeds City Council, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Garfield Weston Foundation.

In our MSA LIVE group, we provide practical architectural software technology. At the same time, we can give full play to our imagination and creativity, and actively express ideas. In addition, we encourage teamwork and enrich our own skills in the process of cooperating with others. Regular presentations are also a great opportunity to present your ideas and results to others.

Hi there, this is Jason from Atelier CPU AI ! I have worked on several residential, mixed-use and commercial projects during my year-out, and I am particularly interested in the relationship between public space and political resistance.

With the significant social and industrial importance of the site, the Tetley has been acting as a cultural hub for exploration and social interaction. Over 120,000 people visit the Tetley every year and we strongly believe every person deserves to explore their cultural potential and has access to creative learning regardless of their background and generation.

Rethinking the use of space of the Tetley’s ground floor means enhancing and creating a more flexible, creative and contemporary environment, for the community to experience art, culture and the brewery history of the Tetley. Better spatial quality and arrangement of the ground floor provides opportunities to support more emerging artists, a platform for holding a variety of free exhibitions, family art workshops and local events.

This project also aims at increasing the revenue that goes to the charity, Project Space Leeds by incorporating the bar, restaurant and shop area and by creating a sociable place of leisure and relaxation that improve the quality of life of the community.
