FountLondon – Shoreditch
188 Shoreditch High Street has been many things; dating back to the early nineteenth century, it was re-fronted in the later Georgian period for commercial use. The building has history seeping from every brick and it’s what we love most about it.
The building was part commercial, part residential up until 2018, but it soon become apparent that the area needed an injection of small/independent businesses and that is when FountLondon – Shoreditch was born.
Supporting Small Businesses
FountLondon worked closely with Credibuild, a high end construction company, and State Studio, design led architects, to renovate the building; as the building is Grade 2 listed, it was imperative original features were untouched and history could be seen in every unit. The final product took just under a year to complete and the building now houses seven small businesses over nine commercial units.
It’s become a bit of a flagship building, a hub of creativity and community for local businesses. Whilst other FountLondon buildings (Old Street, Aldgate East, Petticoat Lane, Columbia Road & Broadgate) are more office or retail based, this building has a nice mixture of office, retail and restaurant, meaning there’s something for everyone. In the last year, this building has gone from strength to strength and continues to provide a space, on a high street, for independent and small businesses.
