A different kind of workspace

Plexal is a place for the innovators of the world: the makers, creators, thinkers, coders, rule-breakers and change-makers.
What was once the Press Centre for the 2012 Olympic Games has been transformed into a bustling mini-city that has its own indoor park, high street, town hall and a room dedicated to making and prototyping.

Why? Because cities are melting pots where innovation thrives: places that bring people from all walks of life together. And we believe that diversity breeds the best ideas.

We’ve designed a workspace just for tech startups and scaleups, giving them plenty of quiet spots like our snugs and phone booths to get their head down and work, but also lots of opportunities to talk to the right people and get the advice they need from the professional services companies based at Plexal.

Our in-house innovation services team can usually be found matchmaking businesses and delivering workshops, sprints, accelerators or incubators to get the ideas flowing (and scaling).

And because we have our own 200-seater events space and plenty of room, there’s usually a party, conference, meetup or hackathon taking place at Plexal on any given day.
