THREESIXTY, Assemblein Barking Town Centre

We are working with architecture collective Assemble and the Barking Enterprise Centre, a non-profit organisation offering free support to small businesses in the borough, to establish a genuinely affordable workspace in Barking Town Centre with a social mission and non-profit ethos.

THREESIXTY will be a workspace for local people who are starting businesses in the creative industries, and will include a wellbeing programme, skills training, business support, space for events and an adult education programme.

The space, which is housed on the ground floor of a new residential building behind Barking Station and around the corner from A House for Artists, will open in August 2020, and responds to a need for flexible, affordable workspace in Barking.
