Shakespeare Business Centre in Brixton is a vibrant, quirky centre with a strong community feel and good public transport links into central London and the local area. It offers a variety of workspace for rent, including offices, studios, workshops, two meeting rooms and coworking space.
The converted Victorian warehouse consists of two three storey buildings; East Wing and West Wing, which surround a small external courtyard. These contain 79 commercial units, ranging from 90 – 2,500 square feet (8.30 – 232 square metres).
Due to its central location, there is no parking available, but the centre offers a central loading/unloading area and 24 hour access. There is also a large break-out area for customers to relax in and mix with other residents.
Our customers are largely from the creative arts and culture sector, but the centre is also home to businesses from the professional sector.
Studios and workshops
We have 52 studios and workshops for rent, which are based in the East Wing of our business centre. They range from 185 – 2,500 square feet (17.2 – 232 square metres) and are available to let on an unfurnished basis, so you can tailor the space to meet your needs. With their high ceilings and large windows that let in plenty of natural light, these are perfect as artist or photography studios.
We offer 17 offices for rent. They all have suspended ceilings, double glazing, carpets, electric heating and air conditioning and are available unfurnished. As they range from 90- 900 square feet (8.3 – 83.6 square metres), our offices are suitable for individuals through to companies of up to ten people.
We provide two meeting/conference rooms within Shakespeare Business Centre. Both rooms are offered with complimentary WiFi and tea and coffee. Catering can also be provided on request.
- Our large conference room can hold 20 in a boardroom layout and up to 35 delegates in a theatre/seminar setting. Based on the first floor, it contains a whiteboard and flip chart and can be hired from £25 per hour.
- Our smaller meeting room can hold up to 8 people and is a bright, modern space to conduct your meetings. Hire starts from just £15 per hour.
We offer mailboxes from our Brixton centre from £60 per month + VAT. This includes three hours complimentary use of our meeting rooms each month.
The Work Lounge at Brixton is our second coworking space offering completely flexible workspace. The large shared office provides a professional, yet relaxed atmosphere for homeworkers, freelancers, mobile workers and those who want to reduce their daily commute.
The contemporary and stylish workspace contains exposed brick walls and modern furniture. Its full-height windows provide plenty of natural sunlight and you can help yourself to free hot and cold drinks from the dedicated kitchen. The shared space contains a combination of dedicated desks and quiet areas, allowing you to work independently, while still benefiting from an environment where you can chat with and get to know other co-workers.
The venue is open 9am – 5pm and has a capacity for up to 40 people. There is no need to book a space, but you do need to register as a NearDesk user and be allocated an access card, which also controls payment. Please speak to Natasha who can help to set this up. We offer three payment options, depending on whether you want somewhere to work on an ad-hoc or more permanent basis:
- Pay-as-you-go: £3 per hour, with a daily capped limit of £25.
- Monthly access, no allocated desk: £150 a month, with unrestricted access
- Monthly access with dedicated desk: £195 per month, with unrestricted access
