London's got a new hotspot and this time it's in Brixton...
Opened in May 2015, Pop Brixton is a project to support local jobs, training and enterprise. The space is a pioneering new initiative created with the local community in mind to showcase the best and most exciting independent start-ups and businesses from Brixton and Lambeth, where they can share space, skills and ideas. This innovative project was designed by Carl Turner Architects and was delivered in partnership with Lambeth Council and The Collective.
Created from low-cost, low-energy, shipping containers, the refreshing design has a focus on sustainability and efficiency. The converted units will create a mini-city, providing much needed flexible studio, retail, office and workshop space in one of London’s most vibrant communities.
Pop Brixton will house the next generation of local food and drinks entrepreneurs, retail outlets, workspaces for local business and artists, tech enterprises and a community event space, to be enjoyed by all.
