Visit the LOFT White City Warehouse Pop-Up . Open from 9-6, monday to friday
The White City Warehouse (WCW) is a safe, inclusive, place where companies and the local community can meet, communicate, and collaborate in the heart of West London.
The adaptable building, previously known as the Elephant West project space, has been transformed into a cultural platform that speaks to today’s makers and audiences, one that adapts and responds to the changing creative environment.
The design engages the latent architectural potential of a derelict, utilitarian building, and resurrects the foundation myth of White City. White City is named after an exhibition which took place here in 1908, celebrating a new alliance between France and Britain, the 'Entente Cordiale'. The grand pavilions were painted white or decorated in white marble making it 'The Great White City'.

It is the essence of alliance and cooperation that formulates the spirit of LOFT’s partnership with White City Warehouse.
LOFT is increasingly focused upon the impact our company has on society and the environment. And this has led us to explore the development of two key concepts: social value and social impact. These two terms are often used interchangeably, but it’s important to understand the differences between them.
The key difference between social value and social Impact is that social value focuses on the short-term benefits that a business provides to society, whereas social impact looks at the long-term, sustainable impact that a business has on society and the environment.
Social value refers to the positive impact that a business has on society and the environment. This can include creating jobs, supporting local communities, and reducing carbon emissions. Social value can also be measured in terms of the economic, social, and environmental benefits that a business provides to society.
UK SFA'S SOCIAL IMPACT
On the other hand, social impact refers to the long-term, sustainable impact that a business has on society and the environment. This includes the positive and negative effects of a business’s activities, and the impact they have on future generations. Social impact can also be measured in terms of the positive changes that a business brings to society, such as reducing poverty, improving health, and promoting equality.
One key measure of social impact is delivering quality, affordable and social housing, without unsettling and displacing communities.
In support of this, LOFT is hosting and sponsoring the inaugural launch of the UK Single Family Housing Association (UK SFA) at White City Warehouse – their motto is More Homes, everywhere. For everyone.
