Make Shift




Make Shift is a team of entrepreneurs, architects and designers who transform underused space, into amazing places that inspire community, creativity and enterprise. Our social purpose is based on empowering local people to contribute positively to the community around them. Our first ground breaking project is Pop Brixton, delivered in partnership with Lambeth Council, that has transformed a disused car park in Brixton, South London, into a totally unique public space built with recycled shipping containers and a lot of love. Pop Brixton opened its doors in May 2015 and is now home to a community of over 190 independent, local businesses operating from the site including restaurants, street food traders, retailers, creative startups, a number of social enterprises, a radio station and even a local barbershop. As well as being a hub for local enterprise, Pop Brixton has become a go-to destination for events and entertainment, with more than 750,000 guests exploring the site since it opened. Our event space hosts live music, theatre, cinema, Djs, Supperclubs and much more.
