The Tramshed Project
The Tramshed Project is a new place to eat, work and explore ideas. A year long residency, it’s housed in the iconic grade II listed Tramshed building in the centre of Shoreditch.
We want to safely bring people together and offer support at a time of uncertainty; to build on the spirit of community fostered during the pandemic. With membership-free work spaces, food from some of London's best chefs, wellbeing classes and exciting cultural events, we're offering a space to work, hang out and rebuild together.
As well as providing a support network to local founders, freelancers and small businesses, the project works with local charities by serving as a food donations distribution hub. It’s also supporting A Plate For London, a grass roots organisation aimed at tackling food poverty in London created by Tramshed Project founder Dominic Cools-Lartigue during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The Tramshed building was built in 1905 as a power station for the overground tram network that once covered parts of London. Until earlier this year, it had housed chef Mark Hix’s largest restaurant which famously featured Damien Hirst’s ‘Cock and Bull’ sculpture as its centrepiece. With the cow now gone, we will be showcasing art works from up-and-coming artists from diverse backgrounds, while trees and plants pump fresh air and life into the space.
