The Brix at St Matthews (the big building in the centre of the roundabout) is opening a new high-tech shared office space early in 2013, which will offer subsidised rents for community groups as well as being available to local businesses. Desk space will be available by the day, week or indefinitely. The project is also supported by Lambeth Council. Here’s more information: The Brix Community Hub QA – Ver 6 Word Doc (1)
