Life at The Collective

If you’ve yet to set foot in one of our spaces, it can be hard to imagine what life’s really like there. That’s why we asked a few of our members to tell you in their own words. Hear from Serwan, Alice and Calvin as they share their personal journeys of living at Old Oak. Each has a different story but all three have found inspiration, connection, and support within our spaces.

Wether like Serwan, you're inspired by how the architecture is built for connection; like Alice, you're looking for friendship and community; or like Calvin, you'd benefit from collaborating with other entrepreneurs; The Collective really has something for everyone.

"London - for many people - is a very lonely place." Says Serwan an architecture student from Kurdistan. "Being at The Collective really opened my eyes to how this building tackles social isolation."
