Subway Cars as Art Studios
The Village Underground

By: Elsa Blaine (Rockstar) Nov 29, 08

The Village Underground is a community for struggling artists in London, England. Furniture designer Auro Foxcroft came up with the concept of rescuing abandoned subway cars and turning them into low-rent studio space.

For just £15 a week, creative types can lease out the ditched public transport vehicles to use as a workspace. The subway cars are located above a restored brick walled warehouse which can be used as a gallery to show their art.

There are plans for similar settlements in Berlin, Lisbon and Toronto.
