Project Info

Pop Brixton was our first project. It has used recycled shipping containers and reclaimed materials to transform an empty plot of land in the heart of Brixton, South London, into a thriving community space that is now home to around 50 local businesses.

Our members include food businesses, retail boutiques, creative studios, social enterprises, a youth radio station and a community barbershop.

the story

The idea was born when Lambeth Council asked the community to propose ideas for a positive meanwhile use for a barren plot of land. Local Architect Carl Turner devised a proposal that imagined using containers to create supportive space for local, independent businesses and community groups. It opened its doors in May 2015. It now houses a full-time community of amazing independent businesses and has attracted well over 1 million visitors since it opened.

Pop Brixton is currently planned to remain in place until October 2018.
