Transforming a unique venue

Theme: ‘British Urban Lawn’


Our plans for the derelict rooftop included a lot of custom-built infrastructure. We built a bespoke shipping container bar and selection of furniture, due to the 16-week duration, we liaised with a structural engineer to build the pergolas, to ensure they were compliant with British building standards.

The busy London rooftop location called for some careful planning. To lift the major event structure into place, we sourced a crane company and managed the logistics, which involved a 95-tonne crane. Everything was lifted on to the rooftop and we began building mezzanine levels, street food stalls, vibrant pop-up bars, unique pergola structures and all operational infrastructure including power and water supplies. 

The finishing touches

Panoramic views of East London


Two floors of this East London car park were completely transformed, resulting in a quirky and vibrant event space. This hidden gem offers awe-inspiring views across the London skyline and has attracted sponsorship from some big-name brands including Blue Moon, Staropramen, Rekorderlig and Laurent-Perrier.
