Brighton's brightest gaming studio latest to join tech community at Circus Street


Electric Square is the latest company to join the award-winning Circus Street in Brighton city centre. The new quarter is attracting the brightest tech companies, with Electric Square signing a lease for two floors in The Office as they continue to grow their game development studio. They join Hyve Managed Hosting, who have been thriving on the top two floors since taking up residency last year.


Part of the Keywords Group, Electric Square is involved in internationally recognised brands such as Assassin’s Creed, Need for Speed, Battlefield and Forza, providing gold-standard development expertise to leading companies around the world. The studio has committed to a ten-year lease in what is fast becoming a new creative hub in Brighton.


Nathan Gouveia, Studio Head, from Electric Square Brighton said: “We chose The Office at Circus Street because it’s a stunning, modern building based in an exciting new part of the city, surrounded by the buzz of creative organisations, matching our bold ambitions for Electric Square to be the global leader in AAA console game development.”


The Electric Square team will join Hyve Managed Hosting in Brighton’s new tech building which sits at the heart of the enterprising Circus Street community now alive with the University of Brighton’s Art College, the Dance Space, home to South East Dance, White Cloud Coffee and Wolfox’s soon to open Japanese restaurant, Fumi.


Rob Sloper, Development Director at U+I, said: “The addition of Electric Square at our Circus Street development in Brighton, once again underlines Brighton’s place as a global city that attracts world class talent. We always imagined Circus Street would become a new digital and creative hub, and we are happy to see this vision realised with two outstanding industry leaders choosing Circus Street due to its location, award winning design and highly sustainable specification.”


The 30,000 sq ft Grade A workspace at Circus Street  has a city-leading sustainability rating (BREEAM “Excellent”) and WiredScore Platinum-rated digital connectivity. Two floors remain available in The Office, comprising 10,300 sq ft.
