Last week saw the launch of House of Vans London, a 3,000 square meter art, music and skate space under Waterloo station, and the latest addition to London’s creative playground. Representing the eclectic diversity of London and the cultures that have embraced Vans from its humble beginnings, through five decades, House of Vans opens with a showcase of creativity and a commitment to nurturing its next generation.
There is many great features to this great space including 4 art studios available free of charge where artists are given the opportunity to exhibit within the space. The complex also serves as a 850-person capacity music venue and public gallery, containing artist labs, a cafe, a cinema and a selection of bars. Iconic hip hop group Public Enemy even stopped by to perform for the launch party.
