Pop Brixton, London | Carl Turner Architects

Created from low-cost, low-energy shipping containers, the design has a focus on sustainability and efficiency, with converted units creating a mini-city, providing flexible studio, retail, office and workshop space in one of London’s most vibrant communities. Accommodating startups, small businesses, local entrepreneurs and community organisations, the campus provides work units, pop-up food facilities, bars, and catering units with a central courtyard area; the only space of its kind in Brixton. Additionally, Pop Brixton will include an event space hosting live acts as well as community and private events.
