THE WHAT, THE WHO & THE WHY
PLATF9RM is a new dynamic workspace that connects Brighton and Hove's creative and business industries. We’re a community that thrives through collaboration, and nurtures skills in a beautifully designed, flexible environment.
So…why are we called PLATF9RM? Founder Seb Royle used to commute to London every day. He realised Brighton needed a workspace tailored to the needs of the 21st-century worker; that gave them 24/7 flexibility and connected them with people that could make their business grow, Brighton station has eight platforms, eight ways. Seb was looking for a ninth way and knew he couldn’t be alone. Hence, PLATF9RM was born.
Since opening our first floor at Tower Point in North Laine in November 2016, ours has been a tale of tireless expansion. We added a second floor at Tower Point in July and, 2 October, opened the first phase of our site at Hove Town Hall.
We’re on target for 500 in the next 12 months, with professions ranging from film-makers to accountants, copywriters and developers. We have multi-national businesses and a succession of one-man and own-woman bands.
Our team prides themselves on getting to know every business that works with us. We also curate a wide program of social and cultural events that mean PLATF9RM members get to know and (hopefully!) like each other. To us, above everything, the community is key.
So, please come and have a look around PLATF9RM. We’d love to see what you do.
