The Pill Box is a start-up focused office space provider based in Bethnal Green. The space provides 112 creative and digital businesses with a collaboration area allowing them to work together and grow. The site is a £9m redevelopment of the former Allen & Hanbury pharmaceutical factory, and contains many of the building’s original features including lab tile floors and brick columns with new additions including energy-efficient windows and a natural ventilation system. The building contains several areas designed to encourage collaboration amongst its tenants, including an apothecary-themed shared working space on the ground floor, a communal roof terrace and a café/restaurant.
Pill Box is surrounded by the authentic railway arches and trendy East End bars and pubs. The building embraces its historical features…each studio retains a patch of the authentic brickwork combined with a pure-white colour scheme.
