Since its launch in 2011, Hammerspace has served as a community space for hundreds of Kansas Citians. Unlike coworking spaces with traditional desks and chairs, Hammerspace gives members access to lasers, 3-D printers, sewing stations, radio components, and equipment for welding, sculpting, woodworking and other art forms.
In April, Hammerspace moved out of its Brookside neighborhood location, where it resided for nearly six years. The decision was partially because of neighborhood complaints, but more directly attributed to the makerspace outgrowing the 6,000-square-foot building, said founder David Dalton.
Early this summer, Hammerspace opened its doors to its new 17,000-square-feet location, which lies on the corner of Emanuel Cleaver Boulevard and 45th Street. The maker community in Kansas City has grown tremendously through the years. Now, Hammerspace is regarded as one of the largest makerspaces in the Midwest, Dalton said.
