The Millfields Community Economic Development Trust (Millfields Trust) was set up to enable local people to contribute and manage the regeneration of the Stonehouse neighbourhood in Plymouth. Genesis is part of a masterplan for the local area with a vision to restore the urban fabric along Union Street and contribute to the aspirations of the adopted Millbay and Stonehouse Area Action Plan.

The building provides managed office accommodation arranged in a series of lettable units of variable sizes designed to support the needs of start up businesses.

It is designed to provide a high quality architectural approach that embeds environmental awareness with low energy consumption and running costs.
