Spotlight is a multi-million pound creative youth space designed to inspire. Spotlight aims to provide new chances and opportunities for local young people and help to tackle some of their problems.

The 3-storey building includes a boxing gym with changing rooms, a sauna, social lounges, games hall with a cafe, room for training, meeting and doing homework, a music laboratory, recital suite, health counselling suite and supporting services. All of which are free to young people in Poplar, Tower Hamlets, safely under one roof.

A central atrium is the main focal point to the building and runs the full height of the building. The project achieved a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating.
