Freelancer workspace and social hub launches in Shoreditch
A new community hub designed to provide freelancers with a space to work and socialise has launched in East London.
UK leisure property firm Shelley Sandzer has announced the launch of Glasshouse on Brick Lane in Shoreditch.
Secured by Shelley Sandzer on behalf of restaurateur duo Alex Peffly and Z, the new bar and community space concept aims to act as a hub for freelancers looking to work and collaborate in the day and socialise in the evening.
Designed by Z, the 1,000 sq ft glass-fronted building comprises workspace, a terrazzo counter bar and glass-encased recording studio.
Alex Peffly, co-founder of Glass House Brick Lane, commented: “I felt there was a need for a collaborative, inclusive and safe space for the community to come together in, and I hope Glass House can be exactly that.
“We tasked Shelley Sandzer with finding a site for our innovative concept and are delighted with this buzzing Shoreditch location.”
Etai Page, leasing agent at Shelley Sandzer, added: “Alex and Z have been hugely successful with their other ventures across London, and this latest concept picks up on the rise in London shared workspaces with a social element.
“This site at the corner of Brick Lane and Bethnal Green Road is perfectly placed to attract the Glass House audience.”
