Mill Co: began in 2009 as a unique creative agency specialising in nurturing the skills of independent creatives to produce a broad mix of projects for brands and annual exhibitions of personal work by the collective. It became clear that physical space would be beneficial to house the creatives so Mill Co. evolved into one of the first not for profit, affordable workspace providers of it’s kind in London.

Mill Co. Partnerships: We work closely with borough councils, housing associations and private landlords to transform moth-balled buildings, add value to commercial spaces and place-make for large scale developers and councils.  We’ve worked closely with the GLA, Hackney & Haringey councils and developers such as Notting Hill Genesis, Islington & Shoreditch Housing Association, Sanctury Housing among others.  We are always on the look out for new commercial partners and local councils with which to work so please get in touch if you’d like to find out more.

The Team: Mill Co. is a female lead micro business founded by director Claire Martin and co-run by Drucilla Burrell and Eva Borowska with Glen Riches and Mille Beth Wright. The team has a flat structure and our model reflects our founding Co-opertive values.
